To Ricky Garni's previous piece To Part II
Thelnt & Shin I. I love when you ask a question of someone and they respond immediately, without hesitation. it is an almost supernatural experience and I think probably hindi in origin. "jake," I asked in the grocery store, "what do you think would be a good name for our baby?" "thelnt," said jake. jake and his wife cathy once worked very hard on a crossword puzzle. after a real long time, it was finally complete. "whatıs the last word?" asked jake. "thelnt," said cathy. "it canıt be," said jake. "youıre right," said cathy. and so they went back to work to see what they had done wrong. years later, I ran into jake quite by accident. "since that day, many years ago," jake told me, "I have met two thelnts. one is my neighbor, and the other is a rather unpleasant bodyguard/chauffeur of bulgarian extraction." "thelnt," jake said with authority, "would be the perfect name for your child."
