The 7-year-old daughter of a lieutenant answered a telephone call while her mommy was in the shower.
A man called, identifying himself as Colonel Hendrick. She asked if he could please spell the name slowly. He said, "H as in horse, E as in egg, N as in Nose, D as in doggie, R as in rabbit, I as in Indian, C as in cat, K as in kite."
When her father returned, he found the following message. "Mommy and Daddy, Colonel Horseeggnosedoggierabbitindiancatkite called."
