a solution

Wednesday was a beautiful day. The Family made an impromptu decision to dine al fresco at a yummy little pizza joint in downtown Our Town. Great food, gorgeous weather, my amazing family… life is good.

Or it was. Until the flying insect came to visit.

You see, The Parents have no real trouble ignoring such distractions, but The Kidling gets pretty worked up. Shooing and gesticulating wildly, Alice tried and tried to rid our table of the pest, to no avail.

The winged wonder was not giving up without a bite of her salsiccia.

Finally, she had had enough. Frustration mounting, The Kidling proclaimed, “Shoo! Go away and. Don’t come back until. 100 years have passed! (turns to The Parents) Let’s see if that works. If it doesn’t, next time I’ll speak it in bee talk.”

Too bad it worked. I would have delighted in hearing the bee talk translation.
