Mommy's Right

Butch:  *muttering about how we're way early for our appointment but not so early that we have time to do anything else*

Me:  *grinning and thinking of Andy's custard*  Hmmm. I know what we could do. In fact, I think it's a sign. 

Butch:  You're pathetic. I don't wanna hear about --

Molly:  *without a clue what we're talking about* Mommy's right!

No One

Molly and Charlotte:  *playing a game of pretend, in which Molly has assigned the role of Bowser to Grandma B, the role of Mario to Charlotte, and the role of Princess Peach to herself*

Grandma B:  *holding Molly "captive" on the couch*

Molly:  *wailing incessantly* Help me, Mario!  Help!  Oh no!  Mario!  MARIO!!!!

Charlotte:  *climbing into my desk chair, facing away from Molly and Grandma B* No one wants to save you.
