Speakin’ Texan

The boots, temporarily at rest after a long week of speakin’ Texan.

The Five-Year-Old, who is a rabid Auburn Tigers fan: “Grandpa, I like the way they say ‘Awl-burn’ in Texas.”

Grandpa: “Awl-burn?”

The Five-Year-Old, with a hint of a swagger and the slightest kick to her white leather cowboy boots: “Yes. Awl-burn. I like to speak Texan when I’m talking about Awl-burn. I usually speak Boston.”


About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
