Conversations with Cassie while she plays with scrabble letters at 11pm at night making words and having an impromptu spelling lesson:
Resulted in the following exchange.
“What does this say?”
SAT FAT RIS
We decide together that RIS is an acceptable name for a person – boy or girl. Stephanie points out that RHIS was a real name and would be even better but Cassie didn’t have an H. And besides she thinks it should be pronounced “Rice”. Cassie and I both agreed that RICE was a better name anyway and I suggested that Stephanie name her first born Rice.
“What? In memory of my days on Guam?”
We all giggle together.
