Guest Napper #47 – Conked Out Cobra

17 Nov

As Kurt Vonnegut  George Washington  The Great Pumpkin Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich famously said during a commencement speech over a decade ago,

Ladies and gentlemen of the class of ’98: Wear sunscreen. 

Breaking a long nap strike, Beta Dad’s “Twin A” (a.k.a. Cobra) has fallen asleep prepared for a lifetime of sun safety, as Mary Schmich counseled.

Her future's so bright...

Cobra has been giving Dad a run for his money lately, outsmarting every nap-inducing tool he had at his disposal. This time, however, she did herself a favor, unwittingly following Mary Schmich’s continuing advice:

…trust me, in 20 years, you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.

And Cobra is nothing if not truly Fab. Fabulously impudent in her nap tease, wherein she falls asleep near under the bed, instead of in it.

She does it with style. Even her dolls and stuffed animals seem wide-eyed with admiration. Something tells me she may not be taking a nap at all tomorrow. You know…just to assert herself.

I bet she’ll still be wearing her shades, though.

    Beta Dad’s twins kill me with cuteness every time. This is no exception.

So what do you think?
