Do you remember Mary Poppins’ magical measuring tape?
Just by measuring the children and herself, that measuring tape reveals some deep and useful truths about them.
How does Michael measure up? “Extremely stubborn and suspicious.” And Jane? “Rather inclined to giggle. Doesn’t put things away.”
And of course Mary Poppins herself is revealed to be “Practically perfect in every way.”
So do I want to be measured by that magical measuring tape? Or not? Hummmmm—– Got to think about that one!
