The evil step sisters

Simone and I made a quick trip to the grocery store this afternoon. As we were heading in, we were passed by two rather hard faced women wearing brown raincoats and walking briskly together to get to the store. Simone says, "Are they the stepsisters?" Meaning are they Cinderella's stepsisters. I said, " No, why do you ask?" Hoping they hadn't heard or intimated what she meant. I thought they looked pretty grim. Simone says, "They are stepping so fast. Are they the sisters?" I was really chortling then. Cinderella's quick stepping sisters.

penguin gun

Ro was shooting at Simone and I with a finger gun, which is nothing new or surprising for a boy his age. Except - that this one was a penguin gun. If shot, a penguin appeared on your head. He eventually filled the whole house with penguins.
