My mother taught 2nd grade for many years. One year, she had a student who would say “Shanks” instead of “Thanks.” She absolutely loved this little guy.
Somehow his “Shanks” has stuck with me and I tend to say it all of the time. Today, “shanks” just sounds better to me. It makes me smile every time! Try it out for a few days and see what you think!
I even text “Shanks” all of the time and end up having to override spellcheck. 🙂
This post is really a thank you to those of you who donated to my daughter, Kate’s “Kick It For Cancer” team. I wrote about Kate and her numerous text messages yesterday. If you missed it, you can check it out here.
A BIG Shanks goes to:
You made her week! You really did!
And as you might imagine, I got a bunch of new texts from her for each donation!
Plus, my wife and I are going to match every donation, so she’s got that going for her, too!
