Sentimentality

I was asked how the 'g' in bologna is pronounced and for some reason beyond my ken, i launched into a full blown dramatic rendering of bologna.
The 'g' in bologna is pronounced as sex is pronounced. It is the way you would talk to a baby's sleeping form beside you. It is a breeze picking up on a stifling summer day. It is love, it is death, it is ruin and triumph at its best. And when someone asks you a mundane question like "How do you pronounce the 'g' in bologna?", it is the sound of dry leaves under your feet.
