The American Girl

I took 3 kids to the movie today to see Kitt Kittredge in action. They had all read the book so it was a reward, although they didn't really need a reward for reading :) It was a fabulous movie, I cried about 3 times, and was impressed by the cast. I don't know the names of any of the actors except for Chris O'Donnel, but I'm sure you could look them up on imdb.com if you really care to. Oh, Joan Cusack was another bit part that made the movie as she usually does. But this is not the reason for the post. You should go see the movie, with your kids, but here's what happened after the movie...

The characters are Me (played by me), and 3 kids who will remain annoymous (K1, K2, K3).

The last line of the movie is said, the credits barely get a chance to start rolling and before the lights start to brighten:

K2: I really need to go to the bathroom.

Exit, rear stage, sharp right and directly to the ladies. K1 and K2 enter restroom, K3 and I wait outside.

Wait, wait, wait. K3 decides to go to the bathroom.

Finally, K1 and K2 exit together.

Me: Sheesh, what took you so long?
K1: I was waiting for (K2).
K2: Ya, I took a while. I had to do two things.
Me: (smiling) Oh, I see.
K1 and K2 giggle.
K1: Well...
K2: Well, I really had to do 3 things.
Me: 3 things?
K2: Ya, um... (giggling)
Me: I don't even want to know.
K1: Ya, you don't.

The End

Does anyone have a clue as to what "3 things" could mean?! I still don't know. Silly kids.

In my family we didn't actually say the words pee or poo, we said, "I have to go #1." or, #2. If you had to go #3 it meant you had to both pee and poo. WHEW, what we go through not to have to label our waste products!
