your regularly scheduled programming

yonina (walking into the room and abruptly flicking off the lights): wow it sure is dark in here!

me: it is now.

yonina: it's a good thing i brought my flashlight and pencil and paper!

me: ?

yonina (waving her flashlight at me): listen perel, i need you to draw something for me.

me: what, in the dark?

yonina: no, with the flashlight.

me: fair enough.

yonina (pushing the paper and pencil on top of my keyboard): i need you to draw me some jobs.

me: jobs?

yonina: yeah. you know. like 'bath' and 'line.'

me: what are you talking about?

yonina (groaning): look at the paper!

me: i can't see the paper! you're the one with the flashlight!

yonina (illuminating the piece of paper, upon which is a square and a line): ok, now do you see it? i need you to draw 'bath' next to the bathtub.

me: oh, i get it. you want me to write the word 'bath' next to the bathtub.

yonina (rolling her eyes): yeah!

me: oh, ok. (writes the word bath).

yonina stares at me for a couple of seconds.

yonina: no, no, keep going.

me: you want me to write more?

yonina: yeah, yeah.

me: what else do you want me to write?

yonina: 'bath.'

me: i did that already.

yonina: that's it?

me: yup.

yonina: that's all the words in 'bath?'

me: apparently.

yonina: but it's so small.

me: i guess i could write it a couple more times.

yonina: no, no, write the other one. write 'go down a line.'

me: 'go down a line?'

yonina: yes. next to the picture of a line.

me: are you SURE that's what you want me to write? 'go down a line'?

yonina: yes.

me: ok (writes 'go down a line')

yonina: wait wait wait. 'go down a line' isn't a job!

me: what kind of job are you talking about it?

yonina: you know. jobs! like bath...dishes...milk...

me: oh, you mean like a list of chores?

yonina: we have to start over. draw an 'x' over everything.

me: whatever you say, kid. (draws x)

yonina (brightly): hey perel, isn't that a pretty picture? i think we should call it ted!

actually we have discussed bringing her back in my suitcase many times. she remains skeptical, mostly because, as she frequently points out, 'there's only one airhole.'
