Speaking of Relatives...

Yesterday I was talking to CJ Hubbell, formerly known as Truckbutt due to, shall we call it the "capacity of her diapers" as a wee one. She asked to speak to her one and only niece on the telephone. I put the phone to Stella's ear as she was babbling away to herself saying things such as, "Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Gagagagagagaga! Bbbbbbbbbbb (with some spit bubbles throughout)." As soon as she heard the voice of her sweet aunt she paused and her eyes widened. She had a look of recognition and she raised her head to look knowingly at the ceiling fan--her constant companion in her desert home. Ceiling Fan: the object which reigns on high and is the source of all voices that come from nowhere. "Yes, Ceiling Fan? I hear you. I love you, too, Ceiling Fan. See you soon!"
