"Well, I have a problem."
"Oh no, what's that?"
"Well, I'm trying to figure out how to catch a moon beam and hold it in my hand."
"AAaahh. I see."
"I mean, how do you catch a cloud and pin it down?"
"Yes, that's a problem."
"How do you solve a problem like Maria? That's what this is REALLY about."
"Well, let me ask you this: Is she a flibberdeejibbet?"
"Yes! How'd you know?!"

"She's a devil."
"She's a LAAAAMMMMMBBBBBBB."
Do you see why I love my friend Sarah? We speak the same language. Tonight we are going to see Sound of Music at The Shop, a hip little coffee-shop; every Saturday night in the summer they show a different movie on the huge wall adjacent to their building. Sarah and I have been waiting for this for months. There is rumor of ACTUAL NUNS appearing to sing.
To say that I am excited about this is the understatement of the year. Now. If only I had some curtains to turn into leiderhosen.
