Drama Queen

There's been a good deal of play acting going on in my house lately. Often, these dramatic vignettes center around A. A. Milne's most beloved characters, Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Owl and all the friends and relations in the Hundred Acre Wood. It's a sweet, heartwarming chapter of her childhood that I feel blessed to share with her.

Of course, she directs as well as stars in most of these performances (mainly one acts). I assume mainly the character roles as well as taking on the tasks of property master.

This morning's performance began over the monitor.

Little One: Owl? (Pause.) Owl? (Pause. Pause.) OWL?!

Mama: (Looking at the clock, which reads 5:42 AM.)...mhrphmhph...

Little One: OWL!!

(Pause.)

Little One: OW-WOL!! I. AM. READY. TO. GET. UP. NOW. OW-WOL!!

Mama: ...

That script is better than a lot of cartoons I have seen. You and Olivia should consider putting together an entire screenplay.
(With music by the Puking Babydolls, of course. And, looks like we will need to find a drummer...)
