Loli would like to have a word with you. Or rather, with me. The word is mama, and she says it in a husky little voice when she cries and then in a high-pitched squeak when she's excited. I don't know if any of you have ever heard Fyodor talk*, but some of you may know that Matt does a pretty good impression of him. Similarly, Matt came up with this Loli voice back when she was a newborn - she says "I don't know!" a lot and talks about her business luncheons. To our amusement, it turns out this is the exact same voice she has. I can't tell who's talking sometime: Matt being her or her. I mean, unless it's a full sentence about practicing her stenography or wondering how the Dow is holding up; I'm not quite so easily fooled. Lucas, on the other hand, he thinks she's got the answers. I heard him in the living room the other day, crouched down beside her, asking in hushed and urgent tones "Loli, who is the puppet master? Who is it?"
*Fyo, of course, is always talking about wanting to buy a new pair of leather shorts and a shiny silver shirt to go dancing in the clubs in Moscow. Unsettling, I know.
