FFTIHAD: Put on Your Dang Jammies
Lydia: "For the LAST TIME, put on your DANG JAMMIES!"
Thumbelina: "But Mooooooom! I only have one clean t-shirt to wear to sleep! I need some jammy pants! And Hawk won't let me borrow any of his!"
Hawk: "Dat's right! Don't come in my ROOM! You're not a Jedi!"
Lydia: "Hawk! Let your sister borrow some jammy pants! Right now!"
(silence, then the sound of fumbling around and the slamming of dresser drawers.)
Thumbelina: (sounding confused and annoyed) "Moooooom! Hawk doesn't even have any clean jammy pants either. There's nothing in here except a cape and a sock."
Hawk: (proudly) "Dat's right! One cape and one sock!"
(long pause - followed by Thumbelina stomping back to her room.)
The Cap'n: (looks over at me and says) "It's moments like these when we can really feel good about the job we're doing."
