Getting To Know You

GETTING TO KNOW YOU (Oscar Hammerstein)

Anna:
It's a very ancient saying,
But a true and honest thought,
That if you become a teacher,
By your pupils you'll be taught.
As a teacher I've been learning
(You'll forgive me if I boast)
And I've now become an expert,
On the subject I like most.
[Spoken]
Getting to know you.
[Children Giggle]
Getting to know you, getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me.
Getting to know you, putting it my way,
But nicely,
You are precisely,
My cup of tea.
[Children Giggle]

All [Except children]:
Getting to know you,
Getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you,
Getting to hope you like me.
Getting to know you, putting it my way,
But nicely,
You are precisely,

Anna:
My cup of tea.

All (including children):
Getting to know you,
Getting to feel free and easy.
When I am with you,
Getting to know what to say
Haven't you noticed
Suddenly I'm bright and breezy
Because of all the beautiful and new
Things I'm learning about you
Day by day.
Getting to know you,
Getting to feel free and easy.
When I am with you,
Getting to know what to say
Haven't you noticed
Suddenly I'm bright and breezy
Because of all the beautiful and new
Things I'm learning about you
Day by day.


This song was playing in my head this morning when I woke up and I thought how appropriate it was for this time of getting to know little Zodia Bologna.

Things I Know About Zodi 

1.Zodi thinks she's still a baby. She likes to nurse on the Gundt Bear blanket her breeder gave her. She takes the head into her mouth, stretches out her legs out on either side of the head and kneads the air with her paws just like a cat.
2.Zodi is optimistic: she continues to throw herself at the futon thinking this is the time she'll make it up there except that--so far--she always crashes into it and falls to the floor.
3.Zodi would prefer to be a Jack Russell: she's always under the futon or under the bushes when she's outside.
4. Zodi believes in magic: whenever she gets into her crate by herself, cookies fall from the sky into her crate.
5. Zodi thinks every morsel of food is the last she'll ever get. She's getting better about taking food from my hands but sometimes she still takes hold of my fingers with those incredibly sharp and pointed puppy teeth just to make sure she's getting everything offered.
6.Zodi is against the human habit of wearing shoes. She is determined to eat every shoe she can get her teeth on so that humans will give up the ridiculous habit of wearing things on their paws.
7.Zodi is determined. She is still trying to make Jaime play with her although he makes it very plain that he has absolutely no use for her whatsoever.
8.Zodi believes that her ears are up in posts to make it easier for her to poke Devon in the tummy while savaging his hind legs.
9. Zodi believes that long ago when her ancestors roamed with the dinosaurs, futons were their den of choice where they would gather with their fuzzy bunnies for pack playing sessions.
10.Zodi believes that she was made beautiful so that she could subjugate the human race.
