What I'm asking is should the word "herb" be pronounced like the name Herb (like my human's paternal grandfather) or like "erb". Seems like the English pronounce it one way, and Americans pronounce it another way. Welp, I guess it doesn't really matter. An herb, by any other name would be just as smelly. I'm sniffing some lemon balm in this picture. See the pretty double petunias on my left? (That's MY left, ahem).
