...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.
