My pet name is Mimi. Once my boyfriend misspelled my pet name on the iPhone and the auto correction came up with the word ‘minikin’ instead.
It doesn’t sound like a real word. But I thought since it is a correction, this word must exist some where deep in the dictionary. I took out our Kindle, used the dictionary in it and, to my surprised, found the word!
And hence the minikin’s lair – a young woman’s place for her to pen her thoughts and clear her mind.
