In the van ...
Maggie; "When Jesus takes me up to Heaven, I'll choose right by Grandma."
As Maggie collects several items with handles, she tells me she's going on a trip. I say; "My, you've got a lot of ika there." ("ika" means "stuff" in Amharic, and has just been incorporated into regular Sorley vernacular.)
Maggie: "I"m going to an ika place; it's a store called ika."
