    When in doubt, jab it out!

    I can picture the result of Marigold’s idea. The loud squeal, followed by a leap to stage front ending with a landing in the front row. Standing ovation from the parents because the play is over for another year.

    Phoebe will have to stand … after Marigold jabs her, she won’t be able to sit for a while.

    I like choice number 2. It looks adorable. Horn jabbing could be painful and might back fire and the 1st one looks like shock like you didn’t just get back your lolly pop but it also grew several times its old size and developed new features.

    Also those faces would describe me if Ozy and Millie had a HN cross over, if there was ever an animated series or movie, or went to a con met Dana and mistook her for a HN fan doing fanart and didn’t know till after I talked to her who she was.

    Recognizing Ms. Simpson is easy, look for Phoebe’s Mom. :-)
    Check out the sketchbook: P&M looking elegant.

    Hmm, I wonder if that was Margaret O’Brien’s secret to crying on cue. Maybe she had a unicorn beside her all the time, and we just never noticed!

    re: destiny23

    It’s not hard for actors/actresses to cry. There are plenty of sad things to think of that get them started. The same for anger. Or, if not sad, just keep the eyes open too long and they will tear up from being dry. Or cut a slice of onion beforehand and dab a bit under the eyes. (OWCH!)

    Is that an E flat horn?

    I wonder if Marigold’s magic will be providing any other “special effects”?

    Some cheese to go with the ham?

    If profesional actors uses onion, why do’t use an unicorn’s horn?

    When you are equipped with a horn, every problem looks like it can be solved with a jab? (sort of like the hammer and nail thing…)

    Well, Marigold is unbridled, and doing that could bring her joy….

    Been there, nearly done that. One time I went to Bumbershoot, a Seattle arts and music festival. I went there that night to see The Posies, the power pop group from the 1990s. Before the show I went into one of the art galleries, and I saw four people who looked like fans of The Posies. They were dressed vaguely like them, and one of them had a shirt with the number 23 on, so I figured they were fans. I almost introduced myself to them. That would have been weird, because when the concert started, I realized that they WERE The Posies. If I had said hello to them then at least I could say I could have met them, but it would have been embarrassing.

    It’ll be interesting to see what her teacher says about her expressions. I remember in first grade I was in a class play and was the princess waiting for the sun to come up on her birthday. I tried getting mad and stamping my foot when the sun wouldn’t come up, and the teacher said, “I just want you to stand there and say ‘The sun did not come up.’” No actual acting whatsoever. I was disappointed.
