The Quotable Thanksgiving, starring Opie and Nonnie

Dramatis personae:
  • OPIE, a loquacious 3-year-old
  • NONNIE, his great-grandmother
  • GRAMMY, his grandmother
  • PAUL, Grammy's gentleman friend

I. Wednesday afternoon. GRAMMY has taken OPIE to visit her workplace and is introducing him to her co-workers.

GRAMMY: This is Paul. He always helps me put your car seat in my car.
OPIE (suspiciously): That's not the Paul that belongs to you.


II. Thursday morning, NONNIE's living room.

NONNIE: Opie, come here and give me a kiss.
OPIE: I can't. I haven't shaved yet.


III. Friday morning, NONNIE's kitchen. She opens the newspaper to the obituary pages.

NONNIE: Anyone dead from around here?
PAUL (not missing a beat): Not from [this town]. I already checked.

Fin.

Three year old are so incredibly quotable - yours is especially so.

Hee hee hee. Love his suspicious nature at the non-belonging Paul.

Next holiday I'm going to meet you there. That's my kind of Thanksgiving.

Ha - not the Paul.

Glad you had a good Thanksgiving!
