Wordsmitten Wednesday: The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry

A.J. calls it the “in ten years house” meaning that “in ten years, it might be livable.” Amelia calls it “a project” and she sets herself to working on it immediately. Maya, having recently made her way through The Lord of the Rings trilogy, names it Bag End. “Because it looks as if a hobbit might live here.”

A.J. kisses his daughter on the forehead. He is delighted to have produced such a fantastic nerd.
