a word on helen

ready to jump

 

The thing about Helen is, she’s the sort of girl who, when having forgotten the word for something, doesn’t pause or stumble or ask what it is called.  She dives right in and says the completely wrong word with complete confidence.

“I like ENVELOPES!”

“I picked some CHARD for you!”

(Cantaloupe.  Clover.)

She doesn’t mind being wrong, that girl, and she never balks.

That’s the thing about Helen.
