I Was Quite Comfortable Thank You Very Much (SFMTY)

We Are That Family Hosts Sincerely 'Fro Me To You and I thought that I should share this picture with you all:

Now to some this may look like bad parentinting (HOW could they let her sleep like that?), or at best a bad case of wedgie, but no. That picture represents the way I woke up most mornings from about 7 months old until I was out of the crib. According to my mom she tried moving me after I was asleep to only hae me end up in the same position by morning, so instead of fighting my love of crib wedgies they embraced that I was not like normal children (and believe me--understanding that when I was young was a blessing).

Play Titled: What the Hell? or Morning In Squirrelly-Ville

7:45am. Ringing phone as lights come up on stage left. Hurried commotion of a family getting ready to leave taking place. Daughter is putting on shoes, son is crying about his toast, and dog is pacing excitedly, knowing that she is about to be left.

Mom answers phone, lights come up on stage right showing Dad at work on the phone:

KD: Hello?!?!

Caspian: Hi. Are you up yet?

Mom rolls eyes and ties daughter's shoes

KD: Ummm, YES! Of course I am! We have to leave in 5 minutes. If I wasn't up yet we would be screwed--Muirne get your raincoat and backpack, Bardolf get your blanket if you want to bring it!--what's up??

Caspian: Nothing. Just thought I would call to see what you are doing.

KD: ...and???

Caspian: ...

KD: ......

Caspian: ....Well...

KD: ...I have to go!

Caspian: ...okay I will call you later.



Dad looks at phone confused

Caspian: Bye?

Light fades to black on Dad on stage right. Mom runs around like a chicken with her head cut off and scrambles to get out the door, shaking her head while wondering what the Hell her husband is thinking sometimes...Lights dim, then fade to black.
