As an honest-to-god, fluent esperanto speaker, I congratulate you, Sara
Smarty Pants!!!!  :) :) :)

Actually, in esperanto, the -o ending is NOT masculine -- it merely
indicates a noun. If you wanted to emphasize that the hoper is female,
you would add the ending -ino, thus Esperantino. But you referred to
Presssshhhuuuussss as HE, anyway!!!
