Lola-isms

Conversation with Lola is always most interesting when we're walking after preschool. Yesterday Lola was in a cheerful yet morbid mood and hit upon the happy-for-her thought of her big sister's eventual demise. "She won't be able to boss me around any more! No more bossy old Hassie!"

Today Lola had thoughts of personal glory. "I want to be a rockstar first, and then I want to turn into a roommate. A rockstar, then a roommate!"

Sounds like Lola has come to understand the existential loneliness faced by the successful rock star. See also "Life's been Good" by Joe Walsh.

With any luck, she will avoid the misfortunes of many a performer whose tragic tales were chronicled by VH-1 Behind the Music episodes.

Her room-mate can drive her to the store when she gets her 4th DUI and has her license revoked. But, I think they call that an entourage.

Once a rock star, always a rock star.

Love it! I always wanted to be a rock star. I didn't have a chance in hell, but I had the dream!

We actually listened to that Joe Walsh song the other day on the radio, but Lola wasn't that into it. She's much more into the "whatever Lola wants, Lola gets" song, which we've been singing. I sing, 'Whatever Lola wants..." and then Lola shouts, "GETS!"
