While we were staying at Allan’s Tita’s house over the weekend, I was surprised to learn that her daughter and I have the same nickname.
Tita Loudette explained:
Si Emie (Allan’s deceased mom) man nag-angga aning akong anak, siya ra jud nagbuot nga anggaan akong anak ug “Itchelle.” Nya karon, “Ichelle” pud ang napangasawa ni Allan. Coincidence or meant to be?
Allan and I looked at each other, and suddenly I had goosebumps all over my arms.
