The Scene: the bird dining table. Dinner (leftovers) has just been finished and bb, Middle and Youngest remain at the table. K is in and out of the room.
They admire the ULine catalogue.
Youngest: I don't understand what this is.
K: That's a tape dispenser, for paper tape. It has a brush or sponge in it that moistens the tape.
Youngest (recoiling): Eww. I hate that word moisten. I just hate the way it sounds. Moisten.
bb: Gah! Look at all that twine! I love twine!
Middle: Sisal twine, no less. That's a weird word too, sisal.
Youngest: They sound like names.
Middle: Jewish names. Sisal and Moisten.
bb: Hey! (she's thinking, carefully, to get it right) You could be Morty Sisal and YOU could be Hymie Moisten!
Youngest: Yep! Sisal and Moisten! Moisten and Sisal! We could be in business!
Middle: Yeah. Plumbing and I.T.. Sisal and Moisten Plumbing And Computer Technologies.
bb has been reduced to tears of laughter and cannot continue the conversation.
