(setting--NSG has bought a few discount wigs for Halloween, thinking they would add some fun to the littler girls' princess costumes. She bought a black one for MayMay, and a blond one for Jaws, and, like she ought to have predicted, each girl immediately reached for the opposite color hair.)
MaMay: (preening in front of the mirror) Mommy, I wanted and wanted you to buy me beautiful blond curly hair.
Jaws: I love my black hair! (stroking it with her hand.)
(Pictures will follow.)
(setting: the girls are in the car on the way to a music-class-halloween party, full Halloween regalia)
Jaws: I'm--We're all pretty.
Jaws: I was going to say I am the prettiest, but I only said it in my head.
NSG: Walks out of her room on Halloween morning.
All the kids see her and begin jumping around, making sounds that are half-joyful-shriek and half-gleeful laughter.
Kids: It's Halloween, Mom! It's Halloween!
NSG: I think there are a bunch of little piggies in my living room.
MayMay: (laughs with unrestrained glee) And you're the Mommy Pig!
NSG: I walked right into that one.
