Here’s an actual quote from Rose:
“Oh Mother, what a lovely coat you have there!”
I really don’t think she’s channeling Little Red Riding Hood on purpose — Rose just talks that way. (Also, I purchased the hoodie in spite of the butterfly, and not because of it. But I didn’t feel the need to tell that to Rose.)
I just realized that I haven’t yet documented another endearing example of Rose’s mannered style of speaking — she calls Dean “best friend” all the time. “Best friend, can I help make dinner?” “Best friend, I’m glad you’re home from work!” He says she even started to call him Daddy the other day, and corrected herself.
