The Return of Sybil


We thought she had left us for good. She certainly overstayed her welcome. But alas, she is back. With a vengeance.

Yesterday as Andy was leaving for work I ran out after him and hollered "HEY!!...You forgot something!"

He patted his pants pockets for his wallet and held his keys up and said, "What?"

"HER," I said, and I pulled her out the door by the arm as she was kicking, screaming, wailing and weeping.

"Uh-uh, I don't think so," and he sped away as he mouthed "Good Luck."

So this morning I tried again.

"Hey, guess what today is? It's TAKE YOUR DAUGHTER TO WORK Day. Lucky you!"

"Nice try."

Sigh. I may be sending up smoke signals later if it becomes too unbearable. Someone rescue me, please.

Seriously, your Sybil is just like my son. The temper tantrums. I cannot stand them. I want to jump out the second story window on "hissy fit" days.
