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.
