The Pitfalls Of A Rotten Peach

| Related | October 20, 2013

(My little sisters, ages two and four, are traveling with my grandfather from Georgia to Kentucky. They’ve been in the car for nearly four hours. The entire time, the two-year-old has been singing the same sentence repeatedly.)

Little Sister: “James and the Giant Peach! James and the Giant Peach. Jaaaames and the Giaaant Peaaach!”

(She waits a few seconds, and then begins yet again.)

Little Sister: “James and the Giant Peach! James and the Giant Peach! Jaaaaames and the Giaaa—”

(My other sister has had enough, and interrupts in a rude, mocking tone.)

Other Sister: “JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH! JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH! JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH! UGH!”

Little Sister: *grinning broadly from ear to ear, clapping* “Sing it again!”
