Eleanor with a silent E

18 10 2010

Why do we remember things? I met a girl named Eleanor. It was at university. She told me that her name was pronounced with a silent E. As if you said her name as “Lenor”. I guess the A was silent as well. I never forgot that conversation. Although I can remember very little about the girl. Perhaps her insistence on the silent ‘e’ annoyed me. Or intriqued me. I’m not sure we ever spoke again. Perhaps she didn’t like the expression on my face when she said silent ‘e’. If she reads this I would like to say, “Eleanor, I love your silent E.”
