Let me set the stage. We're all sitting in front of the fireplace asking M about her friends in preschool and she says something like,
"I have a friend in my class named Laundry."
Surely, we assume, we have misheard her. "What's her name?"
"Hmmm...I don't think that's her name, are you sure?"
"Yeah, I asked her if her name was 'Laundry' and she said, 'yes.'" (Can you imagine that conversation?)
So, I've heard of some unusual names, but "Laundry?" I just don't see a parent wanting to name a child that. But here's the best part...
"Actually, I think there are two "Laundry's" in my class."
This is when the mental rolodex kicks into high gear (and believe me, it's had a lot of practice over the past 4 years). Laundry. What name sounds like "Laundry?" Maundry? Oh.....! Then it comes to me--Audrey! There are two Audreys...
Love these little funny things she comes up with as she grows. Thanks for the smiles, M! :)
