2009.164 . Barley Water

Instead of regular water, we got a pitcher of barley water at lunch today. It was pretty good.

 

It reminded me of...

 

Jane: [reading the ad she and Michael wrote] Wanted: a nanny for two adorable children.

 

George Banks: Adorable - well that's highly debatable, I must say.

 

[Jane continues reading while singing alone.]

 

Jane: If you want this choice position, have a cheery disposition. Rosy cheeks, no warts...

 

Michael: That's the part I put in!

 

Jane: Play games all sorts. You must be kind, you must be witty; very sweet and fairly pretty...

 

George Banks: Jane, of all the ridiculous... [Mrs. Banks silences him.]

 

Jane: Take us on outings, give us treats. Sing songs, bring sweets. Never be cross or cruel, never feed us castor oil, or gruel. Love us as a son and daughter, and never smell of barley water...

 

Michael: I put that in too!

 

Jane: If you won't scold and dominate us, we will never give you cause to hate us. We won't hide your spectacles so you can't see, put toads in your bed, or pepper in your tea. Hurry, Nanny! Many thanks! Sincerely...

 

Michael and Jane: Jane and Michael Banks.
