ROM or Rome?

Era: 

  • 1982 - 2000

About 35 years ago my sister and I were new to Toronto. Once when I was visiting my sister at her house in the west end, we stopped on the front porch to talk to her neighbour who was also on her front porch with her three year old son. The mother asked the boy to tell us what was his favourite place. The boy answered, "ROM". I understood Rome, like the city and said to the boy, "So you like Italy?"
He answered me very seriously, "I like mummies".
