It's the first day of school. The World family is having breakfast.
Todd: She's coming. You know she's always late.
|Wally: Are they ready? I'm going to be late for work.|
Dolly: Good thing you own the place then. They're just finishing up, but Tammy hasn't come to the table yet."
|Wally: "Well, I'm going to go start the car."|
|Todd: "Mom! The little creep's doing it again!"|
|Dolly: "Gareth, stop staring at your brother."|
Dolly: No. This morning is oatmeal or eggs. The oatmeal just ran out. You're having eggs.
Tammy: Then why did I have to say 'please' for my Fruity-ohs?
Dolly: Tammy, I'm holding a large spatula in my hand.
|Tammy: "I still don't see why I have to wear a skirt!"|
Tammy: Does that mean I don't have to wear a dress or a skirt for the rest of the school year?!
Dolly: We'll see...
Meanwhile at the Rettop house...
Barbara:Is Heidi coming? I need to know what she wants in her thermos.
Vanessa: She's still getting dressed. She can't decide what to wear.
Richard: Ok. Are they ready? I got the car started, but I don't know how long it'll last.
Harry: Can I steer while you push it back into the driveway this time Dad?
Richard: Let's hope it doesn't come to that...again.
Barbara: Heidi is still deciding what to wear.
Richard: Are you kidding? I'm going to be late for work!
Barbara: What are you worried about? I bet Wally hasn't even left the house yet.
Richard: Yeah, but he's the boss.
Richard heads to the bedroom Heidi shares with Vanessa.
Richard: Heidi! Come on! What's the hold up?
Heidi: What do I wear?!
|(Poor Sherlock,the dog. is covered in discarded clothes.)|
Heidi: It's the first day of school and I'm going to look like a creep!
|(Heidi continues her rampage.) Richard: Can't she just pick something?! They're only clothes.|
Barbara: I don't believe you said that.
Neighbor guy: Hey! Barbie!
Neighbor guy: Whatever. Listen, can my kid ride to school with you today?
Richard (sighing, mutters under his breath,"It's starting already.") (out loud)Sure.
Richard: It's the first day of school! How can you possibly know he's going to have detention?!
Neighbor guy: He will.
Some of you might recognize that fence from an earlier post. It's the Byers fence with the evergreen removed. The World's kitchen table is a My Little Kitchen Fairies table. It only came with two white chairs, so I pieced together all those red chairs from various yard sales and thrift stores. The Kitchen Fairies table is actually slightly short for 1/6 scale, but I think it still looks great. I found those great Corelle Living wear dishes at Goodwill. They're made by Marx and are from the late 60's I think.And of course, that great Kitchen Littles fridge and sink/counter set. I talked Ken into buying that when Emma was little by saying she and I could share it. It spent her childhood in Emma the Doll's house, and the last few years have been my turn!
