Anyone else like this as a kid? I rather liked those sectioned plates really little kids got since I could keep my food separate. Of course, it's rather troublesome to insist on a different plate from everyone else so I made do. Those are cool plates, though.
Sorry this is a bit late. ^^; Well, it's still technically Wednesday.
Anyway, Mary once again is called upon to babysit for Becky's family. Gotta come up with a last name for them. If for no other reason than Mom being able to refer to Becky's mom as something other than, well, "Becky's mom."
Oh, and yes, Mary is trying to tie the door shut. It's actually SOP in Becky's home because otherwise her little brother would run rampant all night. Fun family, huh?
It's a reasonable enough question, really, just not the first thing Mom wanted Mary to have in mind. Charity is a virtue and all that. Besides, these are supposed to be friends. You're supposed to be willing to help friends without expectation of reward.
On the other hand... well, you'll just have to see Wednesday's episode. There's a *reason* Mary wants to be paid so badly.
I'm Brigid, not my birth-name, but the one I chose for Confirmation. It's a Catholic thing. Want to learn more about how I grew up? Check out my semi-autobiographical webcomic, Mary Quite Contrary.
The closest I've come to earning a living as a writer is one summer I worked as a feature columnist for a small-town newspaper. I've been telling and writing stories my whole life, though, and, hey, it's something I enjoy. Whether I manage to make a buck at it isn't that important to me.
