Heard It Wrong?

For years I have heard and pronounced the word niche rhyming with the name for a female dog. Lately, I've heard it used sounding like the mid 20th century replacement for using the lord's name in vain - geesh. I'm now starting to wonder which is correct for a US speaker.

So, which is it?

As for me, I'm going to try to make my speech a little more urban and use "Nee-otch"

From my Dream

The dental assistant turned to the dwarf with the toothache and said, "When you come back next week, you won't need to wear this vest."


The plane in which I was a passenger was taxing very fast, skidding and spinning around the turns trying to get to the takeoff point quickly. After a 180, I turned to the other passengers and squealed, "He's doing doughnuts!" They all smiled condescendingly.
