Sometimes I Get Bored

I found these characters arranged on Mia's windowsill one day after an un-productive nap time and  had to see what they were up to...I apologize.


SCENE: It's a hot, sultry evening.  Bugs are whirring and zzzzzing along the countryside while the sun blazes from the west.  A small party of sightseers rounds the corner of an antebellum mansion, inspecting the premises.  A bluegrass band is tuning up in the distance, and conversational laughter mixed with tinkling glassware pours out from the open windows of the stately home.


Pink Lady #1: Well, I declare [declayuh]! Who in their [theyuh] right mind holds an open-house ball on the hottest day of the year [yeeuh]?!

Yellow Lady: Now Ella, you know very [verrah] well the Clampit's are a pack of [uh] no-count carpet-baggers, and can't be expected to follow our [ow-uh] traditions!  Why, they wouldn't know a summer [summah] day if it crawled outta their [theyuh] bags and whistled Dixie at them!  [Unexpectedly hee-hawing laughter pops out.]

Young Man: [Rolls eyes.] Apparently, Miss Belle, YOU don't know a summer day, either, or you wouldn't have chosen such an over-padded ball gown.  [Sighs at being confined to the company of such ninnies.]



Pink Lady #2: [Whispering conspiratorially.] My own dress, Mister [mistuh] Charming [chah-min], is not padded in the least...

  9. HAHAHA!! I don't know what is more entertaining ... the dialogue, the inserted dialect or the fact that you've just played dolls with us here on your blog.
    You are too much, Sarah, in such a very, very, very good way.
