Dora The Explorer

4 Jun


DORA: Hi. Hola. Do you know how we can get Mommy a drink?

Long pause.

DORA: That’s right! The Wine Fridge. Can you say “Rioja”?


TALKING SNAIL: Vino tinto!

TALKING WINE FRIDGE: Yum yum yum yum yum. Delicioso.

DORA: Si.  Yes. How will we open the bottle?

CORKSCREW WITH EYES: (singing) I’m the corkscrew, I’m the corkscrew, I’m the corkscrew, I’m the corkscrew, I’M THE CORKSCREW.

DORA: Great! The corkscrew opened the wine. Now Mommy can have a drink after overcoming today’s obstacles, such as: the Riddle of Why You Won’t Put on Pants, the Daycare Meltdown Puzzle, the Late for a Work Meeting Again Race, the Snapping at Daddy Dance, the Great Bedtime Battle and conquering Mt. Laundry.

CHORUS (all singing):

She did it!  She did it! She did it! Hooray!

Yeah she did it

Mommy made it through another day

Without having a nervous breakdown

She did it!


Roll credits.


DRINK: Anything from Spain. This includes cava. Qué viva España!

    Love love love. Except for the fact that I now have Dora tunes stuck in my head and drinking is frowned upon in the work place.

    Do you have the same problem I do, with swiper swiping all the damn time? You know- swiping over the last good piece of stemware you own? And then you either have to figure out the way through the magical forest to get to Abuela’s house to borrow a new one, or you can just steal Dora’s little sippy cup and drink your wine out of that. I wish there was a song for that.

      I am penning that song immediately. I will give you full credit when it hits the Billboard Top 10! Dora’s Sippy Cup – remixed with vodka.

        I’ve got a remix going for Lil Wayne’s Lollipop that goes something like, “shorty want a hug….bubbles in the tub” with cut-to’s of me shaking up bottles of formula in the kitchen all pseudo-overstressed-sexy like. I’m thinking if we team up, we’d be a youtube sensation.

        That is actually brilliant. Thank god for auto tune and a generation who doesn’t give a shit about the art of ACTUAL music! Yayyyyyy!
