My Kindle was on the table, in screen-saver mode. Many of the screen-saver images feature famous authors.
“Anne Ghoul-berg!” Little Brother exclaimed when he saw the picture on the screen.
“Who?” I said, picking up the Kindle. “This is Agatha Christie.”
“Oh! I thought it was Anne Ghoul-berg,” he explained.
“Who’s Anne Ghoul-berg? Where did you hear of her?”
“In my mind,” he replied proudly (I should have known).
I switched on the Kindle and resumed reading my book. After a few quiet moments, Little Brother inquired, “Is there an Anne Ghoul-berg?”
One thought on “When In Doubt, Make It Up”
What a great name! I'm wondering if there is one, or something like it, too.
