Loud Girl

The other day Elisabeth was playing with some of her friends outside. She was trying to explain something to her group of friends and, as she is wont to do, the further along in her explanation she got, the higher her voice rose in volume and octave. Finally one observant friend asked her, "Elisabeth, why do you always yell everything?"

Elisabeth contemplated the question and then, without missing a beat, parroted something she's heard adults say about her multiple times "Oh, because I'm a loud girl," was the matter-of-fact reply.

Yes, indeed, she is. And also, apparently, unfazed and unembarrassed about the fact.
