Daddy Steve: Craft projects have become a Thanksgiving tradition in Gregoropolis. The kids enjoy them, and they are a good way to keep them busy (and out of my hair) while the turkey cooks. This year's project is a bit more ambitious; it involves a kit for making 4 puppets. My idea was that the kids could assemble the puppets and make up and perform a little story. This definitely called for some planning and an early start...
Because she fancies herself to be in charge of everything, I made Holly Belle the 'executive producer' of this production.
Holly Belle: Don't worry, Daddy Steve. I've got this all under control.
Meghan: What exactly does an executive producer do?
Holly Belle: Well, I make all the high level decisions, and then I delegate the various tasks
to other people.
Meghan: You're a true leader, Holly Belle!
Holly Belle: It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it.
Holly Belle: Patrick and Ravi, I'd like you to be in charge of making the puppets. Gather up some kids to help you. And remember, I want a nice, neat job.
Ravi: Nice and neat is the only kind of work we do!
Holly Belle: Ann Marie, I want to you to be in charge of writing and performing the story. You'll need to assemble a team of writers & performers. Thanksgiving is a time of love and togetherness, so make sure you really pile on all that 'feel good' stuff.
Ann Marie: I'm on it!
Holly Belle: >sigh< All of this executive producing has worn me out!
