: "...no, it's NOT! I mean, it was NOT a li..."Bongie
: "Oh hush, you
You're always disagreeing with me! I mean, just once, can't you..."Jinamarie
: "OH. MY. GOODNESS... LOOK!!!!"Bongie
: Now, what?! Jina, I swear you're always going around lost in thought and then BAM! You just..."Jinamarie
: "No, seriously, LOOK!"Mimi
(in a very tiny voice): "What the heck IS that
: "Whaaaa... WOW!!!"Mimi
: "Her eyes are as big as our heads!
(to herself): "Ok, just keep walking, pretend you don't see them. Lalalalala...
: Wow!Errr.. WOW!!! Ummm...Oh, fried chicken in a bucket, your HEAD
! How come it's so BIG
: "Oh! How rude! How...OH!"Bongie
: "Sorry! Sorry! Sorry! I just...Sorry!!! Don't cry, we might all drown if you do!"Mimi
: "Sorry! Sorry! Sorry!!! I just...Sorry!!!"Jinamarie
: "Hey wait a minute-- are you the reason our human has been so preoccupied lately and acting all guilty and stuff?" (turning to Bongie) "All those shoes and dresses that were coming in all week long-- remember? We thought they were too big for us, and too small for Miss Rosie, and we couldn't figure out WHO they were for? Remember?!"Charlotte
: "I....er, I..."Jinamarie
: "And those really cool sunglasses! Remember? We asked our human if she's forgotten our size already and she put us back in our boxes, remember?!"Charlotte
: "I....er, I..."Jinamarie
: "And then we kept catching our human on the computer LATE AT NIGHT, laughing! Squeeing! Muttering, 'Blythe! Blythe! Blythe!' over and over again! But when we approached her, she'd quickly switch the computer screen to the Realm of Resin
or Zone of Zen
: "Or the Den of Angels!
: "And she kept hiding all those packages coming in from Hong Kong and California! We may be small, but we're not DUMB!"Mimi
: "And she started going through the closet where all her bimbo BARBIES
: "And cutting out a new size in dress patterns!" (advancing closer to Charlotte) "You! Who are you and what have you done to our human?!!
: "Hey, stop!!!"Bongie
: "No, wait, STOP! We seriously do not wanna make her cry! It's been raining all week and it's still very boggy around here!" (turning to Charlotte) "I'm sorry! We're all sorry and have forgotten our manners! What's your name? I'm Bongie, I'm the Queen of The Resins, and these are my sisters Jinamarie and Mimi. How do you know our human?"Charlotte
(to herself): "Queen of the what? Resin? What? Oh, is that what you call all those Alien-looking dolls with the spooky eyes?
" (out loud) "Err.. Hello... I'm Charlotte..."
Bongie takes her hand, but both of them recoil in sudden shock.Charlotte
: "Wha...yikes! What are you MADE OF?!!"
(and at the same time)Bongie
: "Sweet Pig in a Blanket, are you PLASTIC?!!"
After staring at each other in silence for a few minutes, Bongie makes a spontaneous decision for them all.Bongie
: "Well! Plastic or not, I think we're going to keep you. Your mug is kinda growing on me for some reason... You've got cool shoes, are those Keds? And hey, love the beehive, babe! I really need to buff up because they don't make cool jackets like that in my size. OOOoooOoo! Is that a cleft chin I see? How sweet! I don't have a cleft chin, but I've got dimples, see?! Hey, Jina, you should whip up a meal or something! How about cantelope and beer? And Mimi-- bring out your paints-- I bet she can hold still longer and better than I can, and you can really emphasize that cute cleft, ya know? And forgive me for asking again, but why IS your head so big? Hey, where's our..."Charlotte
(to herself): "Where is that human, indeed
?! Oh dear, they're sitting so close... oh...oh! Wooo! What? Agh! Woooo! What are they doing? Oh dear... the little one is staring at me! Oh! Where IS my human???!!!"To Be Continued
