I Am Woman

"Mr. Educator?"

"Yes, Suzie?"

"What 's the difference between A-L-L-E-N and A-L-A-N?"

"Just the spelling, I think."

"Well, I like A-L-L-E-N better."

"I don't sink so," opined her neighbor (note to self--work on that "th" sound).

"Well, Suzie," I told her, "Maybe some day you'll have a son and you can name him A-L-L-E-N."

"No, I'm going to call my husband A-L-L-E-N."

"Don't you sink he may not like it?" asked the neighbor.

"If he wants me, he's going to have to use that name," declared Suzie, and the matter was closed.
