HB: Huh? Why are you repeating what mummsy’s been mumbling all week.
SPAL: There’s still something wrong with Blogspot.
SPAL: Wish I could hypnotize it like I can mummsy.
HB: You can’t hypnotize mummsy.
SPAL: Can, too.
HB: Can not!
HB: Show me then, Pansy!
SPAL: You stand and stare. Concentrate on what you want. I don’t even have to touch her like Riley does in Beth Muscat’s book, Remember the Eyes and Nothing Without You.
HB: Ooooo….you’ve been playing with mummsy’s Kindle.
SPAL: Not! I’ve been reading. I’m learning a lot from Riley. Hypnotizing someone takes a lot of concentration. If it weren’t for my reading skills and these two great books by Beth Muscat we wouldn’t be getting dinner on mummusy’s good dinner plates. We’d still be eating out of what they call the DOG BOWLS.
SPAL: Didn’t you know DOG is really a bad word?
SPAL: Well, it is. And, I refuse to do anything a DOG might do.
