...it's a friendly tickle with a little pinch.

It makes me get hiccups,

And a loud kind of laugh

That starts in your heels and jerks its

Way to the top of your ears

It gives me a happy feeling that

Lasts for years.

It's filled will memories of childhood days,

Where there was the contentness,

Of coming home to a story read

Carefully by a mommy or daddy.

Hicklebee's is a children's bookstore in Willowglen, CA. I spent a lot of time there as a kid. I chose this word because it reminds me of the happy days of being a kid and having a whole new world open up with the flip of a page.
