Twins Peaks #11

The twins are in bed, but aren’t sleeping yet. I march upstairs ready to yell ask them calmly to settle down, but they are chatting away so nicely that I decide to take a pew on a stair and listen to their conversation. Ez has a stack of Maisie books in her bed, and is reading them to her ‘bruvva Fonz.’

Ez: Read that one now [Maisie Dresses Up]? Ok… It’s make a special costume time. It’s zebra. Hello Maisie! The End.

Fonz: Yay! Well done Ez. Now I wanna go a sleep.

Ez: No!

Fonz: Yes, I’m rilly tired.

Ez: No Fonz, you’re no tired.

Fonz: Oh.

Ez: You’re hungry.

Fonz: Oh.

Ez: I read shopping book now [Maisie Goes Shopping]. There’s no more food. I need food. Go shopping. Buy bread. Theeee End!

Fonz: I just lie down and get special stickers Ez? [The twins get a reward sticker for staying in bed all night]

Ez: There are no special stickers Fonz.
[to herself as she leafs through all the book] I don’ like tht one. I don’ like that one. I don’ like that one. There’s no more reading now. Move back and leave my circle now. [no idea what this means].
