WORDS I SAY WRONG

Whether I misuse them or my Southeastern Oklahoma (thanks to my mom) accent makes them sound funny, these are words I am told I say wrong. WE (because they aren't laughing at me, they are laughing with me) regularly get a good laugh over the following...
  1. REAL
    When used in a sentence, sounds like: "I'm REEL excited!"
  2. MAIL
    When used in a sentence, sounds like: "Has someone checked the MEL?"
  3. SIT
    When used in a sentence, sounds like: "I am going to go SET down."
  4. DEAL
    When used in a sentence, sounds like: "Here's the DILL,"
  5. PILLOW
    When used in a sentence, sounds like: "I like a particular PELLOW."
  6. SUPPOSED
    When used in a sentence, sounds like: "You are POST TO do that."
  7. HIM
    When used in a sentence, sounds like:: "Have you talked to EEM?"
