Overheard this afternoon:
Mary (aka Ingrid): Lewis, you can be Joseph. And now we can go to the ball.
Joseph: NO. I don’t want to go the ball. We’re going to have DESSERT.
Mary: Well. Joseph, does my dress look good?
Mary: It looks good to me. I think I’ll wear this to the ball.
Daddy: Ingrid, maybe Lewis doesn’t want to be Joseph. Have you asked him?
Ingrid: Lewis, do you want to be Joseph?
At this point, a happy alternative came to Inge.
Ingrid: Lewis, do you want to play Snow White and the Prince? You can be the prince!
But according to Daddy, Lewis couldn’t be the prince because of being Inge’s brother. In the end, we hit on the very thing: Inge would be Snow White and Lewis would be one of the dwarves–to wit, Grumpy. It just seemed right.
