Break 'Ixion' down into sounds: [IK] + [SY] + [UHN] - say it out loud and exaggerate the sounds until you can consistently ^produce them

Ixion Got it! You're part of Greek mythology; not a Greek tragedy I trust! So what's wrong with a stop-over in Athens?
Your ancestors wouldn't make nice neighbours, so thankfully they're now mythical.
Unfortunately, when the authorities heard you were coming, all the State borders were immediately closed again and security at airports and seaports has been tripled! sad
One suggestion; have you considered a fleet of submarines? Yellow possibly? tchgrin
We're pretty weak in that regard!

Oh dear Rufus2. Not keen on our 'Grand Grans Gadabout'? We're all so looking forward to it too. Just think what a cultural blessing we'd confer on your delightful colony. We'd all be masked (for a variety of reasons even if Covid is over) We'd rather been counting on you letting us camp in your back yard and setting up a rota for the use of your bathroom facilities. We'd take care of the catering. All you'd need to do would be to keep the barbie going...
