50 sonts

I had a discussion with a colleague today.

She pronounced "centimeter" in a way I've heard previously (usually by surgeons, for some reason), but still, nonetheless, odd.

"The patient has a 2 sontimeter abrasion on his face."

"You mean centimeter? " I asked.

"Yes, sontimeter," she replied.

I had one more question.

"If I give you two quarters, will you have 50 cents or 50 sonts?"

She declined to answer but did laugh.
