ddw in windsor Creating your own name for something (114* d) RE: Creating your own name for something 28 Apr 99


Years ago my sister and her husband lived in Hickory, NC and there son, Criss, used to play with a little boy next door who had a speech impediment -- an "F" substitution for anything that started with a consonent plus and R. Nobody thought too much of it -- just something a three-year-old would grow out of -- when he called my nephew "Fiss," but I'm told it caused quite a stir when the pastor from their church stopped by and Sonny began explaining to him how angry his mother was when his dad brought home his new truck.

True story? I'm not sure, because my brother-in-law was pretty good at dreaming up tales like that, but Sonny really did call Criss "Fiss" -- that I heard....

Anna... Great list.

cheers, ddw
