On President's Day, all of Flowering Buttercup's friends ditched her and made plans early while she was still asleep...at 11:00am...shocking, huh?? June was out with her friends. Mack was across the street. And Spell Girl was at her desk writing her latest character development into her book of scribbles.
FB: (to Spell...) Will you play with me? Pleeeeease....
SG: ugh...wait, I need to finish this scribble.
FB: What?? What in the heck is a scribble?
SG: ...it's an idea that I have for my book...
FB: Are you done scribbling yet?
FB: Well, how long does a scribble take??
SG: It'll be faster if you wait just a minute and stop asking me to play with you.
FB: (waiting...about 30 seconds...)
FB: Now will you play with me??
SG: (still writing, trying to ignore her sister)
FB: (totally indignant and pacing outside SG's room...) Do you know why Mommy and Daddy even HAD you??...so you could PLAY with me!!Well, what can you really do after an argument like that, but hurry and finish your scribbling and play with your persistent sister? (Incidentally, that is NOT why we had Spell Girl.)
