And they lived happily ever after. Any more.

Other responsibilities are pressing today, but I thought you might enjoy a brief note that ties together two recent threads: childhood reading and opaque, obscure writing.

Over Christmas, we learned that our two-year-old niece loves to read books out loud. Of course, she can't quite read yet, so instead she flips the pages and yammers to herself in a mix of English and baby talk--but without fail, she ends every page by saying, "Any more" in a declarative, end-of-story tone of voice.

Her parents have no idea where she picked it up, but it's very entertaining to watch. Any more.
