Daddy, Papa, and Mary
After a morning of civics lessons devolving into mush, Daddy asks Cory and Fisher to summarize what they learned about today…
D: So, why is today a special day, guys?
C: Iffin you want to be good, you should say yes to let Daddy and Papa get Mary. Mary is a nice girl. (Smiling, well aware she’s being an imp.) “No” is not a nice thing to say to her. And iffin you say yes, she will come to our party for Daddy and Papa and dance and eat some cake.
F: Mitt Rom-en-ey says no to Daddy and Papa to get married. Those are not nice words to say. Er, uh, Daddy, who telled Mitt Rom-en-ey to go home?
D: The voters told him.
F: The boaters told Mitt Rom-en-ey to go home. So, we can have a party with a big cake like in that book with the queen and the two princes, uh, er, and that big cake has cupcakes on it, right, Daddy?
D: Exactly, Fisher.
