Ranger Program + Buzz = Laughs

We have been talking about going camping since the start of summer but my work, D’s trips, Buzz being sick, rain, my back..err..you get the idea right..kept coming in the way. The camping trip kept getting left behind. Leaves on the trees are starting to change color, announcing the impending  fall, driving D into a tizzy. Camping trip it was this past weekend.

There is a lot I can write about the trip and I will but this story is about the Ranger program that was held in the camp’s amphitheater starting around 8:30 at night, which we decided to go watch.

Picture the scene: Dark night..rows of benches..people in their PJs sitting here and there on the various benches..a lit up screen in front with some images..camp ranger talking about images on the screen as he flipped slides..

Background knowledge: If a couple of people laugh out loud, Buzz laughs out loud too.

Actual scene: The ranger cracks a joke. Everyone laughs. When everyone stops laughing, Buzz laughs out loud. Very loud and very clear in the silence of the night and the echo of the amphitheater. A child’s laughter so pure and loud amuses everyone. Everyone around laugh again. When the laughs stop..you get how the story goes do you not?? Yeah well one little child cracked up some 30 or so adults for about 5 long mins.

Background knowledge: If Buzz sees an image she has to say something to identify it.

Actual scene: The ranger talking through the slides. Buzz out loud (remember the night and echo): Tee (tree), couds (clouds), wa wa (water), boooaa (boat), flaaa (flower), Baa (for sheep..sheep Baa’s..that being the logic), caaaooow (cow..was a deer actually but oh well), chinti (for ant), cy (cycle), caa (car). Every word that she uttered drawing laughs from people around.

Background knowledge: If Maa and Paa happen to touch each other, Buzz cries out in outrage.

Actual scene: Proud, indulgent parents, all smiles at their little darlings antics, rest their heads against each other. Buzz looks up. Screams (which echos)

Nahein Papa
Nahein Maammaa

Background knowledge: If Buzz is tired (remember it was past 8:30 at night which is her bed time) and she starts crying there is no stopping her.

Actual scene: Once the screams started there was no getting her to calm down. A full-blown drama commenced. Maa and Paa ran towards their tent site to the sounds of laughs of all the people at the Ranger Program.
