Muffin Man: Trend Setter.

Scene: Posh New Pre-school.
Personnel: Muffin Man, me, all his beautiful little classmates, and his teacher.

Muffin Man and I sweep in at 8:45. He has not yet had breakfast (bad mommy!). We put his jacket and backpack his hook in the cubby area and head for the breakfast table.

Me: Oooh, look! Waffles! Would you like one?
MM: Yes, please.
Me: Syrup?
MM: Yes, please.

I serve him. I look up. There is a herd of beautiful little pre-school girls surrounding him.

BLPSG1: Can I have a waffle, too?
BLPSG2: And me?
BLPSG3, 4, & 5: Me too!

Teacher: Wait a minute! Ten minutes ago you all said you weren't hungry!

BLPSGs: {silent}
BLPSG1: Muffin Man is having one. I want one, too.
BLPSG2, 3, 4, & 5: Me too!

I left them still trying to sort out how to split 2 waffles among 5 girls. They may have had to order up extra rations.

Scary isn't it? When I took D'Arcy to school yesterday he had to take with him some amazing creation he'd made for one of the girls there. The beloved was askind me what I'd told D about the facts of life..I said "He's five and a half! what do you think I've told him?!?!"

Those girls are no dopes.
