The 7 is silent

We're in the car and Noa asks

Mommy, can I have some G-U-M ?

I told her I didn't have any, but I appreciated her spelling it. So Eli chimes in

Can I?

Can you what, I asked, knowing full well he had no clue what Noa requested.

Can I have some, um, (long pause) B - X - E- R . . . (pause) 7 ?

Lordy if I had bxer7 I'd give him all of it.
