Well, it’s certainly creative…

Rilla: I’ve been thinking. We should have an art club for kids who want to be artists when they grow up.

Me: I love that idea!

Rilla: I wonder what we should call it.

Me, having a Jane Andrews moment: Um, the Art Club?

(Somewhere, Anne Shirley shakes her head in disgust.)

Rilla: No…I know! How about the Art Bassoon?

Me: *blinks*

Rilla: What is a bassoon, anyway?

 Me: It’s a musical instrument—here, I’ll show you. *reaches for Google*

Google, beaming: You’re going to love this.

YouTube, modestly: This old thing? Why it’s just a little something I threw together.

We watch in delight as a bassoon quartet plays a Super Mario Galaxy medley. Rilla’s excitement cannot be described. She marvels over the size of the bassoons, their rollicking sound as they play the familiar melodies.

Rilla: Bassoons are awesome.

A pause.

Rilla: But on second thought, I don’t think Art Bassoon is the right name for our club.

She thinks.

Rilla: I’ve got it! Art Sardine.

  1. I love it.
    This afternoon Bella was admiring a crayon which she said was a lovely shade of ivory green. I think art sardines might be ivory green.

  2. Oh swoon! I love Rilla stories.

  3. I love it. My teen and I were brainstorming names for an art club she wants to start — I’ll let her know Art Bassoon is available.

  4. She is such a darling. I vote for the Art Basoon club. Art Sardines makes my face go, “Ewwww.”

  5. Hey, I know him! … lol The Sardines and Bassoons are old family friends. (wink)

    Too funny , that girl. 🙂

  6. Wish we could join the Art Sardines! It’s a great idea and my L. would love it.

  8. I kind of think The Art Bassoon should be a record label…

  9. Oh yes. A word gymnast just like her mother! 😀 Great stuff.
