She likes giving people and things new names. Sometimes just names that helps her remember them better. She does this to animals, too. The black and white dog next-door she calls Giraffe, for reasons she now forgets. In her head, she calls her father Roy even though his name is Ralph. She forgets her reasons now, only fragments, and she is aware she would have to explain these to someone someday somehow...She calls her room Narnia, for obvious reasons. She doesn't come out for days upon days. And true enough, years pass her by while inside. It's okay.
