A TO Z

14 Mar

Today’s term list runs the register gamut from informal to formal. A compassionate school psychologist inquired if the other girls poked fun at Ximena during a child/parent interview. A bankruptcy trustee announces a meeting of creditors, an utterance that stems from the frozen language of the law. No warmth there. That is why I treasure interpreting. From the playground to the docket our neurons zoom seamlessly. Enjoy.
