Elayna pokes her head into the room. "Mommy, if you hear an explosion, don't worry. It's just my pasta."
Me, groggy: "Why would your pasta be exploding?"
Elayna: "I'm cooking it with the lid on." (Tupperware. Microwave.)
Me: "Well, take the lid off first."
Elayna: "It's already cooking."
Me: "Um. It's 9 in the morning, and you're cooking pasta?"
Elayna investigates, then returns: "My pasta is quietly screaming."
Me: "It what?"
Elayna: "It's quietly screaming. Like 'eeeeeeeeeeeee.....'"
Elayna wanders back to the kitchen, whistling "Ode to Joy".
Right. Well. I'm awake now. How are you?
