daily diminishing (day 124)

When I was about age 4 until about 8, my aunt stayed with my family when my father was away on business trips. I think that my mom was happy to have the company. My aunt was a secretary (certainly that was her job title at that time) and she would bring her shorthand dictionary and teach my sister and I how to write, using the symbols. We loved it and this was the beginning of many years playing secretary, using those symbols to write in a “secret” language that not many people we knew could understand.
