It's a loud voice and though it's not exactly flat, she'll need a little more than that

Monday, December 22, 2008
Data's Montessori class were acting up. The super-humanly patient Catherine unleashed a 'If you guys aren't good we won't be doing the Christmas show.' threat. This appeared to have the desired effect in that the group quietened down and Data went charging up to the boss woman, plaintively wailing:

'You can't do that Catherine! It will destroy my family!'

The show went ahead today, our family remains intact.

13 Johns and Janes for the comment whore:

Wherever did she get that drama-queen gene?

Medbh said...

She's a natural, Gimme.

If I had a penny for every time Catherine has tried to ruin Christmas...

We actually used that line today, such was our awesome awe of it. She's terrific.

Why do I empathise with Catherine? All dem Gimmines coming at me in a wave.

Yeah, she’d best have her shit together.

gimme a minute said...

I know, I know! It certainly wasn't from me, darling!

Can she be a natural economist instead?

I'll be taking that role. And 70%.

I'm unclear as to whether you were to be included in this destruction. Probably though.


Ah, a rhetorical 'If I had...'. You and your rhetoric.

I've started using a variation of it in work.

'Spin harder or I will destroy your family.'

Nope. Am I a loser?

I really don't know how they do it. I'm at my absolute max when there's even two four year olds in the house. Fifteen of them would have me rocking in the corner.
