Extracting 4 letter words from a wordlist

All I wanted was to extract only the 4 letters words from /usr/share/dict/words. It tooks me a full 10-minutes to figure out the regex for it to work with egrep.

$ egrep '^[A-Za-z]{4}$' /usr/share/dict/words

 Note to self: Must practice regex syntax more often. 

Update (a slightly cleaner way, from @gabegundy):

$ egrep '^[a-Z]{4}$' /usr/share/dict/word 

Happy for a friend

My buddy just told me that his wife is 11 weeks pregnant.

An exchange we had over the phone: 

Anand: If we have a boy, we'll start receiving applications from potential brides. Would you guys be interested in pre-applying? 
Me: Well if we have a girl, I'm sure she can kidnap your boy without any trouble, saving us the trouble of application fees. 

I'm freakin' excited for Anand and Abirami.
