3V1223.02 Duets (5/29/81)
Peggy has begun to ask me to help her sing, even ‘The Fox went out on a chilly night.” What typically happens is that I sing a little, she sings a lot and when she is stymied, I sing a little more. This scenario seems to derive from two sources; one may be her joint singing attempts in the alphabet sounds with Miriam; the other comes from an incident in Cambridge last week.
Going back to Mrs. Tack’s, Peggy asked me to tell her a story. I began with no script in mind and, when we came to some decision point, I would ask Peggy who or what did whatever. We continued this cooperative mode for only a little while till I distracted her with a Tintin book and fell asleep myself.
