I always will remember the first time one of our cats caught a Cicada.

He came into the house with one in its mouth. The noise was really wierd but the look on his face was priceless!

Turn the volume up, they recorded it low cos I told them you hated the noise.
Did you try the recipe, they taste like popcorn when they are deep fried.

Remembering to put something on to leave the bedroom, no running from room to room in the nude, no skinny dipping. All that discomfort of bra straps etc. All that extra washing.

We are in the same position as our daughter is living with us. Sooooo annoying when you have to remember to put clothes on just to pop into the kitchen to put the kettle on in the morning

Just so I actually sound like I know what I am talking about next time someone asks me what that terrible noise is, how do you pronounce that word?

Sicada?
Kikada?
Chikada?

Or something else?

I think the first one is the nearest pronounciation, though some may disagree

Chikada is the nearest correct pronunciation.

How would you pronounce Chica or Chico?

Ok, so we have one vote for Sicada, and one vote for Chickada.

Any more offerings???????



I forgot to add one more suggestion:

Thickada. I guess that's how the Spanish would pronounce it anyway!

Its Sikada mate, from the latin of the family....Cicadoidea, and the Latin word has no emphasis on CH, thus it can only be Sikada.
