Rat the Bird

Remember Anna?  The youngest resident, and most willing volunteer to help the activities chairman.  She is dyslexic, and her speech is as confusing as her written notices: Orio Bosco.

Today she told me, "Gotta rat the bird an wash the momenmites/"

Good, Anna.  Go to it.

So she wrote (rat) the notices on the bulletin board (Bird). Then we went to watch (wash) the Mennonite Choir (Momenmites)

It must be difficult for her to be unable to communicate with someone unless they are willing to understand her.   I am glad that you are willing to make the adjustments to her way of relating information.    Her characterization makes for a good story and I enjoyed it.      mark
