10. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right


Sunday, September 10th, 9:00am
Madigan and Missy


Madigan: Sit still.

Missy: (speaks around thumb) I don’t wanna go to church.

Madigan: We have to. It’s a family obligation.

Missy: What’s a obagation?

Madigan: ObLIgation. It’s when Mommy should have shown up for your Auntie Barb’s Labour Day barbecue and didn’t, and now she feels bad. So we’re going to see her at church.

Missy: (looks out the window for a moment) Is that like when you feel bad for not shaving your legs when Uncle Ken comes for a sleepover?

Madigan: (laughs) Yeah, sort of. But Uncle Ken doesn’t sleep over. Uncle Ken is Auntie Barb’s husband.

Missy: But he goes in your room sometimes after I go to bed at night.

Madigan: (regards Missy for a moment) You know what? Why don’t we skip church and go to McDonald’s for breakfast instead.

Missy: Yay!


Next stop: Monday, September 11th, 8:00am

  1. Maybe next time she’ll clear her plans with Madigan first.


  2. HAHA! Missy is far too clever for her own good!!! 🙂


  3. Gotta love kids sometimes. *grin*


  4. My kids had an Aunty Barb who unfortunately passed away 3/1/16. I feel sorry for this fictional Aunty Barb. Uncle Ken is an A-hole. So is mommy Madigan for that matter.

    Love the premise and enjoying this series very much!


  5. From the mouths of babes!
