Bob and I are sitting in the living room. Zoe and Lucy are back in their bathroom or somewhere near it.
Suddenly we hear a crash and the girls laugh loudly.
Lucy (running out of the bathroom): “Whoa!!! Now that was a experiment!!!”
(She looks up and sees us.)
“Mama. Me and Zoe are gonna need smocks!!!”
