I've started an online class with Kelly Kilmer, A prompt a day for 30 days for the month of November. Since I've been traveling to Vancouver, I got a bit behind. The prompt for day 2 is: What word did someone give you?

I post my page here.

I know.... nothing profounds like "Love", or... Meditate, or...
But this one word, "Chihuahua" was really important to me when I was a kid. I just loved pronouncing it. It rolled off the tongue and it felt so sweet, like velvet.
I must have been 4 or 5, and I certainly didn't know what a chihuahua was.
I would say that word 5000 times a day.
At least.
Until my mother grew particularly sick of it.
And forbade me to say it.

I begged and pleaded and was eventually allowed to say it out loud 20 times.
She kept count.
And I would ask her: "Can I say it? Can I say it now?"

I'd go dance in the yard, or sing in my bedroom, chihuahua, chihuahua, chihuahua...

Even today it's a sweet word. I don't have any particular interest in what the word represents, but still love the sound of it.
