So, despite my best efforts to get them to conform my trio of "birdies" decided to be rebellious and be the class radicals. They decided they didn't want to be cream colored. They wanted to be sponge painted. They insisted on it and then they had all the "dollies" urge me to sponge paint them.
There were just too many "dollies" clamoring for this that I had to acquiesce. Now I know you all know I hate to give in to the "dollies" demands but with the trio of "birdies" and all the "dollies" clamoring I was sorely outnumbered.
I thought if I gave in to the trio of "birdies" on this they'd calm down and let me create them the way I wanted to. Au contraire! Each one had already developed a personality of their own and therefore a style they thought was best for them. Who was I to argue? I was just their creator. So, once again, I acquiesced.
