Upbeat Cynicism

Quote of the day

To further reassure the girls, we stood Captain Fluffy, a teddy bear in a military-style cam on a chair beside the closet door. The captain served as a sentry on whom they could rely to protect them.

“He’s just a dumb bear,” Annie said.

“Yeah. Dumb,” Lucy agreed.

“He can’t scare off monsters,” Annie said. “They’ll eat him.”

“Yeah,” Lucy concurred. “Eat him and puke him up.”

“On the contrary,” Lorrie told them, “the captain is very smart and comes from a long line of bears that have for centuries guarded good little girls. They have never lost one child.”

“Not one?” Annie asked dubiously.

“Not one,” I assured her.

“Maybe they lost some but lied about it,” Annie said.

“Yeah,” Lucy said. “Lied about it.”

“Does Captain Fluffy look like a liar?” Lorrie asked.

Annie studied him. Then: “No. But neither does Gran-gran Weena, but Grandpa says she didn’t either know any guy blew himself up with a fart like she says.”

“Yeah,” Lucy said. “Blew up with a fart.”
