Enojado? In Ohio?

I was reminded yesterday at church how important it is to annunciate clearly and speak with a purpose.

One of the teachers invited us to her church and asked me where I live in the United States. I replied by saying "In Ohio". She thought I said "enojado" which is how to say "mad" in Spanish. This is not the first time I have encountered this issue. My host family in Costa Rica thought that I was mad for the a good two weeks before realizing I meant "In. Ohio."

Lesson learned.
