It's Nippy Today
At our swim meet today, my kids spotted what they took to be a Filipina mother of one of the other swimmers and went to discover if it was so. (Their mother being Filipina.) During the conversation, the woman told them that her husband is Norwegian-Irish, so she calls her daughter her little NIP (Norwegian-Irish-Pilipino). "That's a little odd," I said when they told me, "but thank God her daughter is not Norwegian, Irish, German, Greek, English, and Romanian!"
