The Stones Knew

When Abby was little, maybe three, not long after Laston and I met, he made her cry by singing the Rolling Stones' You Can't Always Get What You Want.

He likes to suggest that she was spoiled - and she may have been, a bit - but she was also only three, and thus, had no real concept of not getting what she wanted, immediately and at once.

Lizzy is seven though, and is having the same problem right now; at this time it's because a show she and Abby have been watching all through spring break is not available for free streaming after season one.

Alex has been kidnapped and is in dire peril.

Lil' Liz has never had to deal with the concept of waiting for a new episode of anything (where Abby has, because Abby is both almost five years her senior and a New Doctor Who fan; waiting for the BBC to do anything over here in Seattleish is bound to teach anyone not to be Veruca Salt).

But Alex is still in peril, neither Netflix nor Comcast On Demand has season two, and Amazon does not carry Totally Spies in  their Prime Free Streaming.

Daddy is not willing to pay two bucks per episode of something like this.

Lizzy wants an Oompa Loompa, and she wants it now.

It's just as well I go back to work tomorrow; spring break is getting... angsty.
