Just Up Our Alley

Kenzo: **typing** “Hey, Kaida, thought I’d better e-mail you and see what you’re doing.”
Persephone: Are you writing to Kaida?
Kenzo: Uh-huh. I’m trying to be a better boyfriend. *chuckle* Last I heard, she was home, plotting world domination.
Persephone: An admirable goal…
Kenzo: I’ll say. We need more short people in charge.
Persephone: So true. I love my brother Waramon, but he takes up too much space and oxygen. Ditto my cousin Boudicca, minus the love part. We vertically-challenged people are much more ecological. Please tell her she has my whole-hearted support. And if she has any openings for posts in her new world order, to consider me –- just after you, of course.
Kenzo: Of course. *grin*
Buddha Girl: **enters** Eh, I hear you talkin’ about bein’ SHORT. You not know what it REALLY like be short!
Kenzo: Well, relatively speaking –-
Buddha Girl: I gots relatives too dat shorter dan you and you girlfrien’. So don’ talk at me ‘bout SHORT!
Persephone: She does have a point. I do appear nicely gigantic next to her.
Buddha Girl: Yeh, an’ you gots da FEET to prove it!
Persephone: Then I should think you had better watch out for these feet, or any others around here –
Kenzo: Um, Perseph, I think you’d better cool it –
Persephone: Oh – yes… I’m not up to being used as a bowling pin today.
Buddha Girl: Dat more like it. RESPECK us!
Kenzo: As I recall, Buddha Girl, you and your sisters didn’t threaten Kaida’s sister Kohana when you met them last year. Why was that? **arching an eyebrow**
Buddha Girl: **hangs head** Don’ wanna say…
Kenzo: Maybe I should invite them to come visit – what do you think about that? I’ll write Kaida right now –
Buddha Girl: No! Don’ do dat, Kenzo-san. I be good – WE be good! Honest! **hugs his leg**
Kenzo: Okay then… And… to show I’m not such a meanie, I have a present I’ve been saving for you and your little sisters. Persephone’s remark reminded me –
Persephone: Did it then… this I would like to see.
A little while later…
Buddha Girl: Eh, STRIKE! You go, Sister! An’ tanks, Kenzo-San. You Oh-Kay in our book.
Persephone: **rubs shin** I don’t disagree with THAT.
Kenzo: Just a little gutterball, is all. *snerk*
Buddha Girl has found a new way to spell, “respect” – wonder what Aretha would think?
