I, like other posters, thought that when people said miami they were saying My ammy! But, I thought only men said it because I only heard sportscasters and weathermen say it, and they are both men on the station that I would watch! I thought that an ammy was a wife, like for example "My ammy is going to lose in the game against Tampa Bay today!" and "My ammy is going to get wet today, lots of rain!" I thought it was like a little form of banter.

When I was a child I used to believe that everyone had an "ami". I used to hear people talk about "my-ami" (Miami) in Florida. I used to wonder where my ami was. I knew other people's amis were in Florida but where was my ami?

My mother had told my sister and me (She was seven, I was five) that we were going on vacation to "My ami". This led me to believe that my mother owned the entire city, and I became angry at anyone but my mom who tried to call it "theirs".

When I was a preschooler, my parents talked about "going to visit Miami." I did not realize "Miami" was a city in Florida, so for a long time I thought an "ammy" was another kind of relative, like a grandma or a cousin or an uncle. I kept asking them, "who's MY ammy?" and they didn't understand what I meant until, exasperated, I yelled, "well if YOU have an ammy that means I probably have one too!" Then they explained it to me. ;-p

When I was little and listened to the weather on the radio from Arizona, I used to think that Miami belonged to the weather man (my Ami).

When my daughter was 3 years old, my favorite fast food joint was called "Miami Subs". My little one heard me say it plenty of times I suppose, because one day when a friend of mine told her he was going to Miami Subs, she sternly told him "It's not YOUR Ami Subs! It's my MOMMY'S Ami Subs!" She totally thought the name was Ami Subs and that it belonged to me! TOO CUTE!

The Ami Subs are MINE!

my brother, as a kid, once mistook the name of the city "Miami" for "My Ami." A family friend, i guess, named robert (this was before my time), used to talk about "His Ami" all the time, so when our mother spoke of going to Miami, my brother blurted out, "No! It's not your ami, it's Robert's ami!"

I was born in Miami, Florida.
So, I'm told, my father once told me "you were born in Miami" and I replied "nuh-uh, I was born in Mommy's Ami"

I used to think that an Ami was a relative, like an Auntie or something because when we moved to Florida whan I was 5, my dad pointed at the train and said "That train goes all the way to Miami." I said "Where does your Ami live Mommy?"

As a child, I was often subjected to accounts of my mother's eploits in some place she referred to as " My Amee". I supposed this was some place only she had anything to do with- by ownership, or membership, whatever it was, I had no idea- and I guessed everyone might have such a thing or place, of their own.
Not until years later did I learn that there was an art scool in Miami, Florida, and understand that, as an art student aiming at a career in commercial art, this was just the place she might have had quite a few significant experiences.

I used to believe that when people would say "Miami" they were really saying "My Ami". And I don't know why,but I thought "My Ami" meant aunt's house.It's funny becuase there was a song that was saying "Welcome to Miami" the whole song,and I thought it was about a guy inviting people to his aunt's house.

Once when I was young my dad once said that we were going to see Miami. I figured that "ami" must have been a name for a relative of some sort. I later said that we were going to see "Papa's ami".

My grandmother lived in Miami when I was a child, and when my mother told me we were to go vist her, I thought she was saying "We're going to my ami" (whatever an "ami" was). I was convinced the city belonged to her, and told all my friends that I was going to my mommy's ami.

When I was little, my mom would always take us to visit my Grandparents in a city she called "Miami". I really liked visiting them, so I would always ask her when we were next going to "your Ami".

After my older sister pointed out Miami to me on a map, I was determined that I must have an "ami" too. It was a real "Who's on first" discussion.
