the newest comedy...coming to a stage near you

Setting: Joelle, Malia and I are in the van heading to The Big City for a lunch play-date. Both of the girls had a busy morning and are not surprisingly a bit hungry.

Main Character: Malia

Supporting Characters: Joelle, Myself

Directer: I wish I could take credit for this -- but nobody directed this. Sometimes these things...well...they just happen!


Joelle: Mom -- when are we going to be there?

Mom: Pretty soon, sweetie.

**2 minute pause (if that)**

Joelle: Mom...are we almost there?

Mom: Yes, we will be there in a few minutes, honey.

Joelle: Oh good -- 'cause my tummy is hungry.

Malia: bum is hungry!

Mom (laughing): Your bum? You have a hungry bum?

Malia (giggling): Yup. A hungry bum!

The scene ends. The curtain falls. The crowd erupts with laughter and applause.


There's only one small problem: I think she's a little confused...'cause the last time I checked, this was a hungry bum:

(Picture is from last summer...sigh -- summer....)
