Closed Set "Animal" game surprise - 7/28/2007

My wife Rochelle was playing a closed-set listening game with Nichole late last night. The category was "animals". Rochelle would say an animal name while Nichole looked away, and she would have to repeat it back to my wife. Nichole was doing well. Her younger (hearing) sister Corey joined in the game as another "caller". Corey has been re-reading all the Harry Potter books, so of course she offered "Blast-Ended Skrewt". Corey and Rochelle were cracking up laughing, but low and behold, Nichole (who's eyes had been closed during the "call') said "Blast-Ended Skrewt" !!! The joke was on Corey after all, thanks to the CI and a quickly re-wiring brain. (This was just 2 days post-activation)
