Puppet Master

You're either a puppet person or you are not. I thought I was going to go insane when I once went to a mother's playgroup and we all had to sit in a circle with our teeny children. The woman next to me wore a glove puppet on one hand and I never heard her normal voice once in the long, long hour my daughter and I were stuck there. I'm sure her poor child went quite mad growing up with that.

My daughter and I got trapped in a church service in England once. The minister/vicar started on about worms rising out of the soil. We didn't like that either. I had only taken her in to show her what a British church looked like inside. Honestly, it was like being in an episode of Midsomers.


  1. It's nice that the glove puppet lady had a hand in her daughter's upbringing.
    Just a shame that one of the worshippers wasn't called Barney McGrew, so you could have demonstrated the Church by indicating "Pew, Pew, Barney McGrew....".

  2. I had to google that to see what you were talking about,ha,ha. My daughter complained about worms for years after that.
