Thomas has come up with several terms for things that we don’t normally think fits with what he is referring to, like the story from last week and this one: One day Thomas was doing his homework and used the word ‘dry’ to describe a small man. Upon hearing Thomas use the word ‘dry’ to describe the man, we were all confused and asked, “He’s dry…not wet?” We could not understand why he could be considered ‘dry,’ so I asked Surprise if ‘dry’ was a term they used in Liberia for something other than it’s true meaning. Surprise confirmed that it was not a term they used in Liberia either, and explained that Thomas was known to come up with his own term or expression for things. Upon further questioning, Thomas explained that the man was small. Now we use the term ‘dry’ all the time to describe something small in jest of Thomas’ creativity.
