I don’t remember how old I was. All I remember is that I was learning how to spell then. One particular evening, my mom gave me a spelling quiz. Towards the middle of the quiz she told me to spell ‘seven’. We ended up sitting there for quite a while until she decided to go check something. Before she left, she told me that if I could spell the word ‘seven’ she’d give me anything I wanted.

And I firmly believe she has 🙂
