I was helping Julia with her homework last night. She was coming up with rhymes for the word tell. The following conversation ensued.
Julia: Mom, does m-e-l-l rhyme with tell?
Me: It rhymes but it's not a word.
Julia: That's how Abby [a little friend with a decidedly western accent] says mail. Like, "Stewart I'm gonna get the mell." And you don't even want to know how she says hail!!
