The Pay Off:
I was reading with Cenny the other day, or rather Cenny was reading aloud to me when the character in the book said: "My name is Alexander, but you can call me Al."
Except Cenny didn't say Al (rhymes with Pal), she said AL (rhymes with Hay Bale).
This make me happy, and I might have to call Cenny Hay Bale from now on. It's a pretty good nickname.**
**yes, I am proud of the correct usage of It's versus Its
