N is for Necessary

My grandson, Lukas, is three and a half. He’s now way beyond the initial stages of language acquisition. Last time I visited, he used the word “necessary” in a sentence. I loved the way he said it so much, I’ve forgotten what the sentence was about.

“Necessary!” I said, “What a lovely word. It feels good to say it even. Neccccccccccesssssssssssary,” I strung it out. with its sibilants.

“Lukie, what are your other favorite words?” I asked.

Lukas was wrapped in thought for some time and finally responded with, “Grandma, I like all the words.”

A poet in the making, I’d say.
