Scooch on over closer, dear, and I will nibble your ear

The dude, who does not seem to recognise herself by any other name, had not seen Betty for some few months. She was initially suspicious, and inclined to back away and do other things, but after a few minutes she discovered that Betty could jump with two feet, which was suitably hi-larious. It was subsequently on. The dude spent a pleasant evening pointing out Betty’s nose and chin, reading Carle’s Very Hungry Caterpillar and Ahlberg’s Baby Catalogue, giving Betty her doll, manning the rocking-horse, running full-tilt across the floor, and even, poignantly, learning Betty’s name. She can say “Uncle” quite attractively, and she manages “Bizzy” with even more aplomb; the full “Uncle Bizzy” appellation is not quite available to her, but it’s coming. (Readers who are newish friends may not know that, at birth, the dude had no uncle. As her oldest and most suitable aunt, Betty shouldered the role.)

    She is blurry nice. This morning she was oosing around singing the name of the boy person friend to herself in a vague sort of way.
