Modern Goldilocks

Here is a far more accurate account of the Goldilocks story. And more modern.

Baby Bear goes downstairs and sits in his small chair at the table. He looks into his bowl. It is empty."Who's been eating my porridge?" he squeaks.

Daddy Bear arrives at the table and sits in his big chair. He looks into his bowl and it is also empty. "Who's been eating my porridge?" he roars.

Mummy Bear puts her head through the serving hatch from the kitchen. 
She yells,"How many times do I have to go through this with you?
                   It was Mummy Bear who got up first. 
                   It was Mummy Bear who brought in the newspaper.
                   It was Mummy Bear who unloaded the dishwasher and put everything away.
                   It was Mummy Bear who put out the bin for garbage day.
                   It was Mummy Bear who walked the dog.
                   It was Mummy Bear who cleaned the cat's litter tray.
                   It was Mummy Bear who emptied the leaf litter basket in the pool.
                   It was Mummy Bear who set the table.
                   It was Mummy Bear who swept the floor in the kitchen.
                   It was Mummy Bear who woke everyone in the house.

                   And now that you have decided to drag your sorry old selves out here and grace Mummy Bear with your grumpy presence, listen carefully, because I am only going to say it once this morning...........
I haven't made the porridge yet!!!"
