Practical anyway

From Eldest, on being accused that she wants to be a Princess so that nothing icky ever happens to her,

No, I want to be a diva. You can do that on a low budget.

It's a state of mind.

Diva – “The basic sense of the term is "goddess" - the feminine of the Latin word divus, "god." (from Wikipedia)
And, yes, you can be a goddess on a low budget...
Brilliant child!

I don't know...Princesses get captured by dragons who take them to their lair...and the lair is pretty icky I would presume....

Wow, that is amazing logic. I think I want to be a diva too.

oreneta said...

Beth, it seemed pretty logical.

Sirdar, while yes, I would have to admit that does traditionally happen to Princesses, it also technically not supposed to happen to them.

Dawn, go for it!!!

Sounds terrifying. You know, it could just as easily have been one of your girls, or yourself. I don't understand why people keep dogs that are so, well, rabid. I know the society you live in is somewhat laissez-faire but really, when it's life and death, it's another matter.

oreneta said...

Bodhi, I am honestly pretty upset about it...the woman who owns it is rather amazing. I don't understand.

LOVE THAT GIRL OF YOURS! How awesome is SHE! Being a DIVA is a "state of mind!" Brilliant! Just brilliant!

How are things going at school for he since you spoke to her teachers? I hope BETTER!

oreneta said...

She...I thought that was pretty cool too, honestly...great attitude. She is doing better so far, the teachers do seem to dwell in an alternative universe though...one of them decided today that the papers they have to hand in tomorrow have to be handed in in a plastic page-protector sleeve, those gizmos with the three holes down the side. See, the papers get all wrinkly and she has to be careful they don't fall apart, so every single parent of these approx 125 kids is supposed to go out tonight and buy page protectors. May she have a teacher like her for the kids she may have some day. Honestly.
