Editor’s note: True story. Elly, doing dishes in the kitchen, is telling her daughter-in-law a story and is looking for confirmation on one detail from her husband who she has nicknamed “Pepik.” Calling over her shoulder to her husband, sitting not far away, she says, “Pepik!”
“What?” He answers.
“Pepik!” she cries.
“What!?” He answers louder than before.
“Pepikoo!” she calls lovingly.
Clearly exasperated, he answers “WHAT!?”
Shaking her head, Elly responds, “Such a shame. He cannot hear.”
