Are you up?
I have a story to tell you.
No, don’t go back to sleep.
It’s a good one I promise.
Not as good as
once upon a time
there was a girl who lived in a castle
and her name was Mommy,
but pretty good all the same.
Mommy lived in a castle,
overlooking a forest of motley fabric,
woven in fairy wings,
and painted silks.
Sometimes she made bricks out of minutes, hours and days,
building a tower high in the air.
But ink children loved to knock the blocks down.
That’s what children do you see.
Now it’s your turn.
Tell me a story.
Tell me my story.
It’s OK, I’ll stay up all night if you tell it.
Just make sure you tell it right.
Song Choice: LOL, because sometimes catering to the needs of ink children can be quite demanding I was in a silly mood and went with Little Girls from Annie performed by the fabulous Carol Burnett
