Say What?

We can say “I” many ways.  “I” means “me,” but the same-sounding word “aye” (you might have heard pirates say it) means “yes.”  A third same-sounding word is “eye” which most of us have on our faces.  But “eye” doesn’t just mean the organ with which you see.  “Eye” is also the official word for any hole you find in Swiss cheese.  These holes are created when carbon dioxide is formed as the cheese is being made.  Traditionally these eyes had to be at least the size of a cherry.
