A New Perspective

Act I

Setting: In the car. Liquor store parking lot. Hubby is buying stores for the cabin (good beer, some wine, and a small bottle of gin). Kids and I are waiting. The Boy is making various noises incessantly, antagonizing Girl. The Girl is entirely vexed and complaining continuously.

Girl: "I wish I had a gumdrop to shove in your mouth."
Boy: "I would just eat it."

And so on. (Boy going back to his noises.)

Act II

Setting: 10 minutes later. Driving through a mountain pass, eating burgers.

Girl to Boy: "I just realized! You're not mean . . . you're *funny*! And I'm funny, too!

[They laugh.]

Yes, they are funny and adorable. Nice that the Girl realized that harmony is more fun than the alternative. Have fun at the cabin!

Fie upon this quiet life! said...
