A New Nick-Name
Poor kid. William has been branded "Snorkis" by his father. His father who presumably loves him. Why? "Because he snorks!" He goes on to explain, "I'm sound asleep in the middle of the night, and then suddenly I'm not." He continues his explanation with much gesturing and an animated voice like he's telling a child a story, "I lay there wondering what woke me up, Hmmmm? And then I hear him laying in his little criblette and he snorks again. So I get up and go over to him, give him his binky, and he looks right at me, spits it out and snorks again! So I tell him to go to sleep." Now he's waving his finger at an imaginary baby, "The lights are off and the snack bar is closed. Go to sleep! And then I stuff his binky back in his mouth and cover him up and he goes back to sleep. He is The Snorkis because he snorks!" And then he adds, "But don't you worry dear," exaggerated wink, "I make sure that your sleep is not disturbed!" So there you have it.
