      Maija-täti sanoi, että heillä päin koirille ei annettu vierasmaalaisia nimiä. Eikä tietysti lapsillekaan. Sitten kun olin käynyt rippikoulun, minua pyydettiin kummiksi. Ehdotin vauvan nimeksi Annea tai Heidiä tai Marikaa. Koulun takia en päässyt ristiäisiin. Pari viikkoa myöhemmin sain valokuvan , johon oli kirjoitettu Kummitädille Eilalta.
