Tiny Talk Tuesday


My children, at their young tender ages, have already become fans of Pride and Prejudice (Colin Firth, not the book ... yet.) I'm excited that 1. they know quality TV when they see it, and 2. they will watch period movies with me.

My children, no matter what they watch, like to act it out. WALL-E, they assign the main character and EVE. Cars, Pooh and Friends, Ben 10, Transformers, and now Pride and Prejudice.

Take note that at the point my children began to play act they had not seen the whole movie. At this point, they had seen up to the part where Elizabeth Bennet turned down her cousin's, Mr. Collins, marriage proposal. At this point my children, at their young tender ages, haven't mastered the American English language, so Jane Austen's English English may take a few more years to understand.

The kids (collectively): I'll play the girl, you play the girl, I'll be the guy, I'll be the other guy. You be the other guy.

EM: Oh cousin, I will marry you.

ED (playing Mr. Collins): I will not marry you.

JT (playing Mr. Bennet): Lizzie, you will marry him.

OK, OK, the plot is all wrong; but watching them act, and for several days, was hilarious.

That is funny...I have to admit that every time it comes on tv I have to watch it as well. That is one of my favorite movies AND books! ;0)
