Sorry, Terry! But that’s not how I say it (see the post directly below). I’m not sure why, but I’ve always been oh-gic (with a hard “G”) to me. I’m just not fond of that chewy “odge” sound, and I definitely prefer the long “O,” like the letter. I think this makes my pronunication sound more like the acronym it is, which I like. I’ve never been known by an acronym before, and I’m finding it rather enchanting. Makes me feel kind of official. So I’m afraid I’m going to have to go over your head here and declare mine the official pronunciation.
Funny, isn’t it, that we never discovered we were saying this differently?
And yes, I did make a Liza Minnelli reference up there. Weird, huh?
