So-So is my son's invisible friend. He is by FAR the most popular thing I write about. It seems everywhere I go people ask about him: What's up with So-So? I saw So-So at Disneyland today. Is So-So still married to LuLu? When Ben fell on the stairs and had to get four stitches, everyone instantly suspected foul play from So-So. If you haven't read any of his stories, you can catch up by reading them now....I'll wait.
Stories of So-So: A friend you can't see is a friend indeed. Stories of So-So: The troublemaker who works at Disneyland. (Fingers tapping on table waiting...) Stories of So-So: It has been a hard week for the invisible people in our house.
This latest story is related to the picture on the right. Ben had his friend Connor over last week and they were playing up in Ben's room. When they came downstairs, they were both wearing their shirts like--well, kind of in a Flashdance sort of style, with one arm poking through the neck hole, revealing one bare shoulder and arm. When I asked them why, they just shrugged and asked me for some apple juice. I figured it was okay with me if they wanted to show a little shoulder, no harm in that. Then yesterday Ben had his shirt like this again---all day. "Isn't that uncomfortable?" I asked, trying to get more information out of him. "No, super comfortable," he answered, obviously blowing me off. "What made you think to wear it like that?" I probed. "So-So wears his shirt like this," Ben said without looking up. "It's how all ghosts wear their shirts." So now So-So's a fashionista. A trend setter among the five-year-old crowd. Tim Gunn would NOT approve--or maybe he would just tell So-So to "carry on." When Larry, my husband, came home and saw Ben's shirt he motioned to me quietly, like "Now, what's this about?" I just mouthed back "So-So." 'Nuf said. Random So-So facts: He has a job making pizza in China, but still works part-time at the Disneyland's Haunted Mansion. His favorite song is Back in Black by AC/DC, because the man who's singing "sounds mean." He and LuLu had twins: JoJo and Crumble (?)
His brother, Knock-Knock, moved out and is now living at Chuck E. Cheese's inside a skee-ball game.
He came to Kay el Bar Ranch with us, but scared the horses and had to fly home after the first day.
