Sunday afternoon, Ashley and her friend where writing lyrics to songs in her friend's backyard. Ashley needed help spelling some words, and asked when she needed help.
"Mommy, how do you spell jest?"
"Jest? Do you mean Just?"
"No, JEST. How do you spell JEST?"
"Can you use it in a sentence?"
"Yes, like 'We jest got home?'."
"Honey, it's JUST, not JEST. J-U-S-T."
In her most I'm six years old and know everything there is to know about everything voice: "No MOMMY, not JUST, JJJJJJJJJJEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSTTTTTTT."
And there you have it. The North Carolina girl who know thinks Jest is a word.
