"Well, He Is Ricky Riccardo"

The girls, June in particular, are currently obsessed with "I Love Lucy".1 They were watching an episode. Ricky was sofly strumming guitar and singing a lovely song in Spanish. I said, "Wow, he's good." June said, kindly, "Not as good as you." I said, "Thank you, sweetie, but I think he's better." She said, "Well he is Ricky Riccardo. He's a professional. But you're really good too." Aww, thank you, darlin'. Almost as good as Ricky Riccardo. My, my! (This is seriously very high praise from June right now.)

1 As I've said, June is a natural Vaudevillian, and Lucy's comedic stylings are right up her alley.
