The kids have taken to “putting on a show”. This is how it usually goes:

1. the kids line up the chairs
2. Jafta makes us sit down
3. Jafta says “Are you ready for a show?” about twenty times. India tries to say it, too, but it sounds more like “Neddy a so?”.
4. Both kids refuse to sing, dance, or perform in any way that might constitute a “show”

Jafta’s kind of like the hype man at a rap concert. Or the crowd warmer at a talk show taping. He’s just there to get you excited, but that’s where it ends. India doesn’t really do much either. She just sits in the chair and laughs at Jafta.

These kids better get their act together if they wanna take it on the road.
