Yay, I’m posting this on the right day.
In no particular order, here are the winning captions . . .
All of the dolls except Emily: WOOOOO-HOOOOO!!!!!!! AMERICA! OH YEAH!
Emily: *comes outside* Er, Molly, dear? Please explain? I do believe you all have finally lost it. I should have seen this coming.
Molly: *reluctantly puts down flag* We’re celebrating because America won the Revolutionary War!
Emily: Ah, I see. Well, I guess I need to put underwear on my head and dance, as well? Even though the British lost?
Molly: If you like. You can celebrate because chocolate was invented. That’s revolutionary too, right?
Emily: YES. YES IT IS. CHOCOLATE FOREVER!!! DOES ANYONE HAVE SOME EXTRA UNDERWEAR?
* * *
*everybody dancing around the flag*
Tracy: TEA! WHERE’S THE TEA?
Emily: Umm, I think it’s in the kitchen. I’ll go get you some!
*the other dolls hurrah and continue to do their dance*
Emily: Here it is! *hands Tracy a packet of tea*
Saige: COME ON! DOWN WITH THE BRITISH (no, not you Emily) AND UP WITH AMERICA!
*they charge towards the pond and dump the tea bag in*
Molly: Guys! You’re gonna kill the fish!
Ivy: Are they British fish?
Izzy: THEN THEY DESERVE TO DIE.
Caroline: Umm, no. They don’t. Everyone back to the flags. *picks tea bag out of the pond*
Emily: What on earth was that about, guys?
Molly: Don’t worry, we’re just being crazy Americans. (to everyone else) A one and a two, and a one, two, THREE!
All the dolls (excepting Emily): ♪♫Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light… ♪♫
Emily: I’m glad I’m a Brit if this is what Independence day does to Americans.
Thanks for entering, everyone!
