‘metiche’ is what my grandma would say

If you get the chance to hold her — and I hope you do — keep in mind that while you are interesting and all — don’t get her wrong — she will really need to get a look at what’s going on behind her.

So she will crane her neck way back. She will strain against your arms. Finally, you will say, “OK, Ooookaaaaaaay, Alice,” and turn her around so that she can check out whatever it was she wanted so badly to see.

Oh. How nice of you. Thanks!

But now what’s going on behind her?
