Little Jo is very much into play acting. She makes up small performances with various roles for people. I am not always happy in the role I am cast in. For her recent birthday, can you believe she has turned five? we bought her a small tent with a tunnel to crawl through to get inside. Yours truly may well be on a Bone Doctor filmed video and looking rather inelegant as I crawled through the tunnel. Well, the tunnel was inclined to come with me and I had to pull it down like a tight skirt. I did so with the full knowledge that once inside, I could just lift the tent off and I would be out.
To prevent any future shenanigans and stealing of limelight by Aunty Andrew, Little Jo turned the tent into a Chinese restaurant. Apparently I do not look Chinese, and so I was not welcome at the Chinese Shop. It must be a local Chinese shop for local Chinese people.
'Little Jo, you always give me boring parts in your productions and R always gets a starring role.'
'Andrew, that is because you are always sitting at the computer and you are boring.'
'Your mother said I wasn't boring when I pushed the Humpty Dumpty easter egg off the bench and said Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. I distinctly recall your mother saying, 'See Little Jo, Andrew is not so boring. He can be funny if he tries'. Please child, it could have marked the carpet when it broke. I did it at great risk.'
I was not involved in the Zoo Show. I did hear a lot of animal like noises, but I was busy at the computer.
Seriously though, R puts so much energy into entertaining and amusing Little Jo, I am happy to take a back seat. Three's a crowd and someone has to make the popcorn.
