Pebbles, my pen pal–March 23/08-
I have a new friend named Pebbles. We’re going to be pen (a writing tool not a prison or a crate) pals. One day we might be yard pals — that would be very nice as long as it’s a yard and not a pen or a crate. This might sound silly to anyone who hasn’t had to equip a home for an infant but did you know that playpens aren’t called play pens
anymore–that’s politically incorrect – they are now called playyards. I bet the MBA from Harvard who must have invented this term got a big promotion and bonus.
