Life Imitates Art

On Friday, Brodie and I left Margot with Baba and Grandpa while we saw The Vertical Hour up in New York.

(Sidenote on the play: While Julianne Moore was billed as the star of this play, the real showstopper was Bill Nighy. Moore's timing and cadence was awkward in the opening scene, and required Nighy's confidence to get back on track in the second and third scenes. Just my humble opinion.)

At any rate, after Brodie and I returned we heard that the police visited the house in the afternoon. Seems that Margot dialed 9-1-1 from the home phone at some point and when the operator didn't get a response, h/she dispatched the authorities to check things out.

I immediately drew a connection between one of Margot's favorite storybook characters and her actions. If you recall, Curious George accidentally dials the fire department in the original story from the series (the 'pilot,' if you will). George (or 'Monkey George' as he's referred to in this house) is then placed in jail for his actions (he later escaped).

Luckily, Margot did not meet the same fate.
