Not long ago, we were out to lunch. Garrett asked me if he could have Hick to drink.
"I'm sorry, what?" I asked him.
"Can I have hick?" he repeated.
"HICK?" I questioned, looking at Troy. He shook his head slowly and raised his shoulders slightly, as if to say, Your guess is as good as mine.
"HICK. Yes!" Garrett said again.
"Oh," Troy said. "He means Hi C."
Reminds me of the time, as a child, when I didn't know that lbs was an abbreviation for pounds and pronounced it lilbles. Why I didn't just say libs, I'll never know.
