let me entertain you
Scene: 6.30am, bedroom.
A toddler is standing quietly at the end of a bed, containing two sleeping parents.
Toddler: "Winkle, winkle...ar. Howa wona...ar. Uppa bubba worl...ayyy. Winkle, winkle...ar." (claps) "YAY!"
"Pull, pull. Tap, tap, tap."*
"Buh buh back seep, wool. Yessa yessa."
"Row row row row row row row."
Parents remain under the covers with eyes closed, shaking the bed with uncontrollable giggling.
