I explained the previous post to my husband and he said Uh-oh.

I'm tired of looking at that contentious pile of words below, so here's something to break the tension. Madeleine likes performance art. This piece is called "The Funeral." I'm not shittin' you - that's what she called it.

Is it the fancy dress that made her call it that? ;-)

Interpretive dance always calls for "deep" sounding titles that can't be understood by mere mortals. Your daughter hears the call of the muse and she follows it. Too cute!

I hope my funeral involves interpretive dance.

wordgirl, I like the picture (although I admit at first I thought it was a pyre and thought you were aiming for martyrdom - yeah, I know! huh?).
jaye, the idea of an interpretive dance funeral makes me feel drunk, somehow.
nancy, I think the fancy dress makes her think a lot of things I cannot grasp. Do you think Annies puts something funky in their mac'n'cheese?

What a creative girl! I love kids. I love hearing what they say. I second Prairie Dawn (GREAT name, by the way; she was my favorite Muppet)--more Madeleine!

I would like to think that she is symbolically throwing her body of the pyre bearing her Viking lover to his gods...

I have a very similar outfit that I reserve for funerals, except I don't wear underwear with mine.

teebs, please tell me something else to erase that image. Or actually, don't. It's cracking me up on an otherwise shitty day... :\
