3V0851.02 Lonely discovery: another micro-script {This little piggy…] (5/22/80)

Upon awakening late this morning, I could hear Peggy through the
partition separating our rooms, talking to herself. She said, “This little
piggy…wee wee home.”

We have recited this game for Peggy for some while (and Gretchen did
so when Putting Peggy to bed last night). Peggy, by the evidence clearly
recalls the first and last phrases. WHAT she recalls is not important.
The fact that once again, by herself, she is rehearing social/verbal
scripts is important. “Lonely discovery” now has more than one
example.
