Bravery

I found a little note, obviously transcribed by Iris Uber Alles from dictation by five year-old Lola:

I'M BRAVE page by Lucy*

Dear Ghost, I hop on one foot, I can jump very high, I'm able to sleep with all the doors closed. I can do bellete[ballet]. If I wasent brave I would tell you. I do things bravly! I AM BRAVE!


* Iris refuses to call Lola by her chosen name and passive-aggressively refers to her as Lucy, her birthname.

I am impressed by her adeptness in dealing with the paranormal. Her need for a Ghostbusters proton gun is as slight as a Jedi's need for a blaster.

i'm impressed how a "loser" like :"lucy" gets others to enscribe her other worldly memos.

Well you had ME fooled. Iris, Lola,SH, Frowsty et al looked remarkably lifelike, and the "dinner" seemed real (although you weren't eating) All of it FAKE! Wow that was a lot of trouble to go thru...s

Or maybe I'M a figment of your imagination, certainly can't trust you to tell me. I may haave to take up drinking trying to deal with all this.

yeah, thanks for the fake phone call and the fake gift basket and the fake card with the fake engraved address!! man, you are good!

Yes, and thanks also for the fake prize I won this summer for the photo, and the fake book exchange, and fake letters and all...

Gosh, what a lot of hard work to be a fake.

I've known DH for what, ten years now? But I'm just a fake, too!

Seriously, minus the troll comments, trust Hughman to get to the heart of the situation: Lucy gets Iris to take dictation.

I gotta say,I think "Great fake blog... Brilliant" is the highest praise I've ever received for this blog. To think someone says this stuff was worth making up and writing down... the act of a "brilliant" imagination is mindboggling.

My darlings, this is my weird but mundane life. I wish I were a celebrated and wealthy socialite jetting about the world and writing these domestic musings in my off-hours (but yet then I would pine for the lack of a darling Sober Husband, vivacious Lola, and intellectually cutting Iris Uber Alles).

Here's wishing you a "REAL" good New Year

Melissa said...

yes, it's actually a great compliment, that you made all this up. (Pay no attention to the woman behind the curtain!)

Happy New Year!
