Discussing Monkey's incredible comedic timing yesterday, her dad and I were trying to figure out if she is more likely to become a stand-up comedienne or a comedic actress. I voted "actress" because stand-up comics tend to have hard, sad personal lives and I hope she'd have an easier time than that.
So, I'm thinking along the lines of Gilda Radner, Madeline Kahn... if she wants to be more mainstream, maybe a Sandra Bullock-type road. She DOES have an Oscar now, and that doesn't suck.
Either way, Daddy and Mommy agreed that Monkey needs to get famous and take good care of her loving parents.
I leaned over to her and said: "Yeah... Mommy wants to retire. What are you going to do for me?
Without missing a beat (as per her trademark, incredible timing), she replied:
"I'm gonna say POOP!"
Um, I may have spit some food across the table... just sayin'.
