5 Year Old Drama Queen: Eeek! There’s a moth! On the floor!
[A dramatic performance ensues]
Mrs. Dalrock (AKA Drama Stopper): Oh no! Where’s the phone?
5 Year Old Drama Queen: [Pauses dramatic performance] Why do you need the phone?
Mrs. Dalrock (AKA Drama Stopper): To call the school. So I can tell them you were eaten by a moth. And that I’ll have to come by later and pick up your homework.
5 Year Old Former Drama Queen: That’s silly. They don’t eat people. [Picks up her backpack and heads to the door for the ride to kindergarten.]
