Monologue by five-year-old at the foot of the bed, 7:42 AM

"Hello. I am a turtle. My name is Myrtle. I am going to cuddle you. The only thing I can say is ‘Myrtle.’ Myrtle. Do you know what that means? It means ‘I am hungry.’ Also, it means ‘I love you.’ And it means, ‘Could you bring me my clothes?’ Myrtle. Myrtle Myrtle Myrtle Myrtle Myrtle. Myrtle. Myrtle. That means, 'Pat my shell.' Myrtle Myrtle Myrtle. "Also, I never stop talking."
