they're "thrilled"


This is, perhaps, to keep us from calling foul when half the kids are howling. Thanks, Kellie.

Just thinking of the possibilities makes me feel so, so dirty!

Why are they using a zero for "Ollie's"?

Meaning of course the screaming, crying, "You're not the boss of me" type.

I'm thinking this is a later manuscript van (Day Care 1), and that the quotation marks were a later addition, an afterthought following a particularly bad day. Proof # 1: they used close quotation marks for both the beginning and the end; Proof #2: Have YOU ever traveled in a van full of day care children? No way are they all happy. Proof #3: Each color addition to the writing indicates a new version (DC 2, 3, and 4). I would enjoy seeing what the Folio edition for this day care van will eventually look like.
(Sorry, I'm tired and reading Shakespeare except for this tiny break to read your blog...)

well, in NYC, "happy" is a code word for "gay" as in homosexual . . . but these are small children, so that can't be it . . .

Of course "happy" is a euphemism; clearly they're doping the kids!

anon 9:49- It is?

Are these the same "happy" children who must comply with the "No 'goldfish', no popcorn, no crackers" rule?

sarah, that "O" that looks like a zero is just the style of that particular font, which goes by many names. You see it a lot in art nouveau prints.
Which doesn't mean it wasn't a lame choice for the back of a van...

Happy = Ritalin OD?

"Happy" = "Ritalin OD"?
