The Wee Manipulator: Act I, Scene I
Scene opens with Young Two Year Old sitting in a rocking chair with a tin full of crayons in her lap. A mischievous look appears on her face and suddenly, the crayons are scattered about the living room floor.
Papa: Jezebel, please pick those up and put them back in the tin.
Papa (singing): "Clean Up, Clean Up, Everybody Everywhere...."
Jezebel continues: Sleeping. Crayons SLEEEEEEEPING Daddy. (Finger goes to mouth and she leans in to Dad) SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! (Marches off to pantry where she hunkers down with a book behind a closed door... apparently to give the crayons the peace and quiet they need to stay right where they are. Asleep).
Papa and Mama look at each other with "Lord Help Us" looks.
