Noted above are all the girl child’s imaginary friends who live, according to her, “in thin air.” Â So many friends! And so many Â that are new to me! Â Such as, all but two: Mary and Sally. Yeah, so they’re spelled phonetically (better than Phoenicianly! that would be impossible!). If you peer closely you will find Sally and Mary on the second line. More or less.
New to me, also, were their last names! Who knew they had last names? Not me!
“What’s Mary’s last name there, Buttercup?”
“Hockey. She’s Mary Hockey.”
“Right. And Sally? Is her last name Doorknob?”
“No. Her last name is Knob. Her middle name is Door. Â Sally. Door. Knob.”
