Mighty Red Pen and Mister MRP, discussing upcoming transitions in the life of D., age 9 1/2 months, and never missing a moment to make a literary allusion.
MRP: D. and his friends Cameron, Ellie, and Michael will all be moving up to the next classroom at daycare soon.
Mister: He and Ellie better be moving up at the same time. [pause] What are the names of the two lovers that speak to each other through the walls?
[silence while we both think this over]
Mister: Tristan . . . ?
MRP: Pyramus and Thisbe.
Mister: Oh yeah. Shakespeare.
