She does pay attention, after all.
Regular Scribe readers know that my youngest is slightly on the bohemian side. It's no coincidence, in fact, that one of Ella Numera Dos' favorite Broadway musicals is "Rent," and her favorite song from that show is "La Vie Boheme."
Y'all who hang out with Mrs. Scribe also probably remember the dirt I tried to rub off Ella's butt over Spring Break.
Well, she's done it again. And I think it's my fault.
Back in April, Ella Dos lost a friend. I wrote several posts about him, and her. In one of them, I offered my heart across the miles:
"Hold on, little one. After the darkness, the light is always brighter. I love you more than I could ever say. I really do."
She had part of that quote inscribed on the inside of her left ankle a couple of weeks ago. A Scribe original, I think, unless I captured the diction from someone long ago & consequently made the words my own. That happens to me, sometimes.
Funny, I've always thought Ella was the one who didn't pay attention to much of what her Old Lady said. And now this. I'm touched, but have to say I was also a tad concerned for a while after I found out.
Do you think she'll have to wear tights to her job interviews, when she decides to become an adult?
