"Mom!" she comes swingin' in on the Tarzan rope next to the patio, where I'm sitting.
"Does l...o...n spell lon?"
"Well... do you mean lawn, as in 'mowing the lawn'?" I ask, very impressed... this is totally and completely new for her.
"No!.... I mean as in 'this has been a loooonn day'!"
I've been meaning to write about how it charms me so that Squeaks completely drops her g's in her words... everything ends in nnnn instead of 'ng'.
"Yes! That's just the way it's spelled, the way you say it!" Her mama says happily.
And so, my friends, it begins.
Just like that.
