Stephy is bound for school, and mom carries a garbage bag for the dumpster at the curb.
ME: Talk to me.
ME: That's not talking, that's greeting.
STEPHY: Okay, then.
Once upon a time there were three dwarfs named Elmo, Scurzy, and Wurzy.
And they had no pancakes this morning.
ME: No spam?
ME: No eggs or fried potatoes?
(Mom deposits bag in dumpster)
ME: Awwww. (hugs Stephy) Now I'm gonna be sad all day. Especially for Scurzy.
STEPHY: But what about Wurzy? He's the one with the rainbow hat.
(starts walking to her bus stop)
......and now it's drooping.
Stephy stops halfway down the street, whips around and gives me a military salute, and continues on.
I return the salute and walk back into the house.
