    We have a similar situation happening here locally, a lady had found an abandoned disabled kitten that was being cared for by a dachshound. She took them both in, and for a while, all was well. But the kitty died, and the dog is actually in mourning. Stays curled up on the spot where he used to be with the kitty, and doesn’t want to move around. Hopefully he will start eating again soon…

    Things to hope for in the future:


    1. That we never get to see either Toni or Brad yelling at Jonah for missing either the talent show, or their wedding.


    2. That if anyone does yell at Jonah about either of the above, that it isn’t in Shannon’s hearing.


    3. That it is Nancy who sits Jonah down for a discussion about his responsibilities as a parent, rather than either Toni or Brad.


    4. That Jonah actually decides to make better arrangements for Shannon, or finds a theater-related job that’s more stable (like doing TV ads), so he doesn’t have as much traveling.


    That people stop calling ‘Brad’ ‘Bwad’….

    It is helpful in this regard to recall that Toni and her brother lost their parents at a young age, due to a car accident. Toni ended up assuming something of a parent role toward her brother.


    Sometimes, when a young person has to act as a parent toward a sibling and does not have a long history of observing her own parents in action, she may not really develop strong parenting skills.

    Being an effective parent has little or nothing to do with telling a child to go perform all by herself or himself, for the very first time they are performing. And that the reason she needs to go on alone is because the parent has so little talent that if he appears with the child, she will look foolish. Do you really think a little kid would understand all that?


    At most, she might figure she was just being told she and her feelings were less important than an adult not looking silly.

    It’s interesting that while you apparently favor Brad going on stage to pretend to play music and you assume that will be enough to make her happy, others here are berating Toni because she hasn’t asked an actual musician to play and instead borrowed a guitar to play air guitar.


    With either Brad or Toni, the concern I had was that since neither really knew music, the audience would think the act was comic and would laugh. And that would hurt Shannon’s feelings. Maybe not as much as missing the chance to perform with her Dad, but it still would not solve the problem.

    Since the only wait staff we’ve seen at Kafe Kablooey is Ox, does that mean some folks think Ox is frumpy?

    I am honestly curious about why you would reach that conclusion. Shannon has had a very unconventional home life, with no mother on the scene and a father who frequently has to leave for work, and leaves her with an aunt or others. And she’s an only child.


    Luann was raised in a more ‘traditional’ home with two parents, and she is a younger sister.


    If you take home life into consideration as a major part of why a person acts a certain way, it would not seem that there would be a way to equate a six year old Luann with a six year old Shannon.

    Anyway, the point of this whole thing about Brad is that if he doesn’t have musical talent and appears to be someone trying to be funny, the audience will laugh. Since Shannon is trying to dance, the laughter would be the last thing she would want. So that’s why it’s better to have someone on stage playing who knows how to play.

    A ‘duet’ is a musical composition meant to be sung or played by two separate voices, or two separate instruments (like a banjo and a guitar.) It isn’t a term that would be used for someone playing an instrument and someone else dancing, for instance.


    A ‘duo’ is two performers.

    I just didn’t see that there was supposed to be anything to the fact that the two words rhymed.
