No More Pee-Wee's Christmas Special For You

Scene: Wednesday afternoon at home. Topher is putting together a crib. In walks Phoebe, a curly-haired almost five year-old. She has ratted her hair to gigantic proportions. There is a sparkly hair accessory carefully placed on the side.

Phoebe: Hey dad, do you like my hair?

Topher: WOW. Yeah. . . it's. . . really big.

Phoebe: Does it remind you of someone?

Topher: Um, should it. . . ?

Phoebe: You know, someone we know? Someone who's REALLY PRETTY?

Topher: Uh. . .I don't know?


Topher: I give up. Who are you trying to look like?

Phoebe: CHARO! You know, from Pee-Wee's Christmas Special. She's so pretty.

Topher: Wow. Yeah, your hair looks just like hers.

Phoebe: Thanks!
