    Monday I tied blue ribbons in her hair
    before she went to school.
    Tuesday I packed her teddy bear
    and she was off to camp.
    Friday I drove her to college
    with her silver flute.
    Sunday she moved to Manhattan with her fiance.

    Will the neighbors on East 35th Street
    please see that she doesn’t dawdle
    on her way to work?
    She’s the one with the flute
    and the teddy bear
    and the blue ribbons
    in her hair.

    So that’s what Mimi will look like in the future…
    I wonder if the strip will progress that far.

    Harry Chapin’s “Cats in the Cradle” comes to mind.

    She’s going to make a beautiful bride. But then, aren’t all brides beautiful?

    You have my sympathy. At least it wasn’t the one about the bananas…

    I can hear it now…. “Do you take this man to be your husband?” Mimi replies, “Aye doo.”

    Mimi should be seeing the mirages. She’s the one in the desert.

    Turn around, turn around
    turn around and she’s a young girl
    going out of the door

    I’ve got that on an old album by the Kingston Trio. Very touching. Don’t really know who wrote it, only that it came from a Kodak commercial. Sort of a shame that we won’t have drawers of pictures in the future. Maybe drawers of flash drives.

    I wonder if she still needs a translator to decipher what she says for the audience?

    just like the subaru commercial with the dad and the little girl. cats in the cradle with a silver spoon. and, fathers still think their daughters are little girls dragging that blanket everywhere, even if the daughter is 25.

    She still has the flower in her hair even with her veil on.
