Sample text

Sure enough, we were home. Yeghsa came running to meet us, clutching our doll. ” “I have to go now, Grandma,” I said, trying to be respectful and not show my excitement because I was dying to run and play with my little sister and be silly again. ”—my grandmother, my two aunts, my mother, and Hrpsime and I. Mother and Aunt Lousapere would dress us in white, and then we would set out on foot, carrying our bundles, which included fluffy white towels, clogs 25 inlaid with mother-of-pearl, peshdimbals (wine and ocher striped sheets of fine silk), a golden pitcher for pouring water, oranges for us, and for the adults pickled cabbages, called tourshi, which would be eaten after our baths.
