On Saturday, we went to a family gathering to help our favorite cousin move. Shirley wore her Perry costume. One of the cousin's friends inquired how we were related to her.
"Jay's my cousin, and I'm also Perry the Platypus' father," Brian explained as he pointed out the Mimi.
"I'm Shirley the Platypus!" the Mimi wailed.
Last month she announced she wanted a little sister. I told her she'd have to pray harder for it, because I was already doing what I could. That's when she decided that Perry the Platypus was not only her invisible friend, but also her imaginary little sister. Does that make me Perry the Platypus' mother?
