My Daughter – The Oblivious Messenger

messengerDanielle has this habit of saying things out of the blue.

Like the other day – when I was putting on my make-up, she put aside her Mac, got up from her nesting place and as she walked out the door (call of nature) she blurted out, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!”


And just yesterday – I popped my head into the bedroom to check on her. She was absent from school with a cough and cold. As usual she was in her nest, headphones on and eyes on her screen. She didn’t even notice me when suddenly, she smiled and said “merci beaucoup” to her computer.

Huh? Whatever…I turned and walked into the kitchen.

…you’re welcome?
