There! It’s beautiful all zig-zaggy like that! I wonder how I can give her some earrings that look real? Hey! I know! Mom has some sewing pins in her box. I saw them when I got the scissors out.
Hmmm. Here’s some red tipped ones. Oooh, those pinky looking ones are cool. I like them! Now, if I can just get them pushed into her head…oops. Too far. Now. There. They look neat with her mod boots and her little swingy coat. Uh-oh. I spilled the rest of those pins. Well… I’ll pick ‘em up when I bring the scissors back in here.
I need a car for her to ride in. Or…something...let’s see…Oh! I know! I’ll get Tom’s jeep. He won’t miss it until it’s bedtime anyway. He never plays with that GI Joe until bedtime.
She looks way cool riding in that thing. But, I think she needs a date. I’ll put GI Joe- no! I like Geronimo better. His hair is as long as the Beetles’. So, so cool. I think they’ll go on a date to the drive-in. He needs a ponytail thingee, though. Yea, that looks much better.
Oh good. Mom’s out back hanging up the wash, so I can sneak in here and let them watch TV, I mean, the movie screen.
They look so cute sitting there in front of that TV. But, I don’t want them to watch this. What is this show anyway? Those people are going to bed in the daytime! B. O. R. I. N. G.
Hey, this looks like a neato movie.
You know, they need some popcorn. I wonder how long Mom will be out there? Looks like she’s still got…yes! A whole ‘nother basket to hang. I can make the popcorn before she even comes back in.
Now, where’s that butter…and the popcorn…and the pot. Oh! Hey! Lookit that Jiffy Pop. That’ll be even cooler!
Hmmm. It says to turn on the burner, place the little fake pan on…and wait. Is it popping yet? Nope.
Lookit how many bubbles this dish soap makes! Whoa…spilled over the sink some…oh well. It’s just water. Pretty slimy, though.
Man, this popcorn is taking a long time. I better go get Barbie and Geronimo.
Hey, look! Cartoons are on. It’s Mighty Mouse, too. My favorite. I sure am glad Tom went over to Jeffrey’s today. Now he can’t call me a baby or hog the TV, either.
That show was funny. Here I come to save the daaaayyy!
Sheesh. I hate commercials.
Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Meyer weee-ner…everyone’d be in love with me…doo-ditty- doo!
Wow, that lava lamp looks so neat. Far out! I wonder if I could make one like that?
Here’s some oil, and some food coloring, and now I need something to put it in. Hey, this bottle of pop is just the right size. I’ll pour this out into the cup…oh! Rats. I spilled it on the counter. Well, here’s a towel. It looks clean. Nice and white. There.
Now. Let me see…if I pour in some oil…then some red food coloring…and then, put on the cap. Shoot! That cap flew off! Oh great. I just dumped this all over the rug. Where’s that white towel?
Well, at least the carpet isn’t too red anymore. Mostly pink in that one little spot.
Boy. That was close. Oops! I’d better check on the popcorn.
It’s smoking! What happened? Oh man. Here…this window…ugh…it’s stuck…now…that’ll take the burnt smell out.
Uh-oh. Here comes Mom.
“Susie! What on earth have you…oh! What happened? Why’s this stove on…huh? And look! Look at my new towel! What did you…do…what is THAT! What is that pink stain on my carpet? And what’s that smell? I need to get the stain remover…whoa…why’s it slippery right there…for gosh sake! Ouch! What’s in the carpet? Pins! Where’d these come from…arrgh… where ARE MY SCISSORS?! Susan Marie Richardson! Get here in. NOW!”
Gee. What’s the matter with HER? Boy. She’s always screamin’ her head off. I wish she were like Amy’s mom. Amy’s mom is so…so…nice. And calm.
