  1. I remember when I was in 4th grade, Snoopy (cartoon beagle) and snoopy (the word that means “characterized by meddlesome curiosity; prying) were both words we had to learn for a spelling test one time.^_^

  2. It took me a while to figure out that “aunt” was a title, not part of my aunt’s first name. On one level I knew this, but when saying her name I did not. It was the same with saying “Father” to the priest at church.
    It’s funny how familiarity changes the meanings of words, isn’t it?

    • When my son Math was three…

      …he was being flown down with his slightly older cousins to Florida to visit my mother. We often spoke about his impending trip to Miami.

      When his mother came to my apartment to collect him around that time, she referred to the upcoming visit to Miami.

      Math sternly corrected his mother: “It’s not your Ami! It’s my Daddy’s Ami!”
