Ode to Geen
“That’s our favorite color, Mommy. Look, Mommy, that’s our favorite color. Geen.”
Or he says:
“We like geen.”
Or, pointing out items in a shop or at home:
“Look Mommy. That’s geen. That’s geen, and this is geen.”
Oh my little green angel.
He also likes lello.
A day is coming so soon on the horizon when geen 'normalizes' to become green, and lello passes away forever.
I'm recording him, of course. Public radio reporter that I was.
But once geen and lello are gone, so, too, is an entire era of language, expression -- and joy.
Of course, on the upside, I've recruited one more person to my Green Brigade.
