Maria von Trapp: Hello?
Mary Poppins: It’s Mary. I hope I’m not interrupting …
MVT: No, just having some tea — a drink with jam and bread.
MP: I’m helping the kids with a Mother’s Day gift for Mrs. Banks. They want to make her a bag, but the Mrs. doesn’t look favorably on cutting up the curtains.
MVT: You know Mally Skok, the decorator from Lincoln? She just launched her own collection of colorful, retro-looking fabrics. You can buy by the yard, but she’s selling totes and makeup bags in seven patterns and colors.
MP: That sounds practically perfect in every way.
MVT: Each bag is handmade locally and has a colorful liner, and the medium tote and makeup case have zipper closures. Order them online and you won’t have a long, long way to run.
MP: That’s supercalif …
MVT: Don’t say it.
