Wish swish from Andres

Dear Word Snoop,

These are my favourite words. Wish and swish. But not fish. I don't like fish. I am allergic.

good to get you know you from Andres

Dear Andres

These are all great words (even fish, but then again I am not allergic.)

Talking of wishes, I'll tell you something funny about the word "wishbone". You know, that little bone in a roast chicken, that you hold one end of it and someone else holds the other end, and you snap it and make a wish? Well, in the olden days (like a couple of hundred years ago) this wasn't called a wishbone, it was called a "merrythought" !

yours merrily and with good wishes, The Word Snoop
