As stated in the last post, I haven't been here in six years. Here's another post that was started and scheduled to be published on August 3, 2008. I'm posting it now so the subject of the post can drop in and read it. I never finished it, sadly, but this is definitely GiGi all over again. LOL!
Here's what was in my draft:
Okay, so I'm sitting here at my computer, and my six-year-old is in the kitchen. She's entertaining herself, as is her habit since she has no sibling comrades. She possesses an over-active imagination and has a flair for drama (probably got this from her mother).
Now, I can't swear to this, but I think I've just been listening to a musical version of Macbeth. I have heard, in the space of ten minutes, no less than:
- Three arias (mainly about taking a sh-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-w-e-e-r);
- More than three reprimands (to at least one imaginary friend);
- At least three gag attacks (make that five now);
- A speech about the importance of going to bed; and
- What sounds like a rather violent murder by poison (complete with fiendish laughter).
I should probably be recording this so I can blackmail Gigi when she's in high school.
She's singing, "La-la-la-la-la-la-la," in a drone-like fashion.
The wordless aria is over - it has been replaced with these stunning lyrics:
"You takin' a bath, sweetie? Okaaaaaaaaay!"
"Are you clean yeeeeeeee-eeee-eeett? I'm cleeeeeeean. I'm clean! I'm clean! I'm clean! Cleeeee-heee-heeee-EEEEEEAAAAAAN!"
"Will you get your face rinsed? Gotta take a little shooooooow-000000w-ooooow-er.... a little shooooooow-000000w-ooooow--OH, GROSS!!!"
[gagging sounds, coughing. . . .]
So, I repeat: What is that child doing?
#END OF ORIGINAL DRAFT#
Here's a picture of the little maniac at her junior prom (Covid robbed her of the senior prom) 2 years ago. (Clearly, she got that bathing thing down.)
