Dinner guest dropped by well past ten last night. I'd let Belle play very hard all evening in the attempt at exhausting her so we might be left alone. Climbing the pantry shelves, cooking on the play stove, a shower and soothing music only made Belle more wired. Belle eventually caught a second whim that mimicked a young man on angel dust. Books were knocked off shelves and acrobats were done off the couch. Dinner guest had to intervene. Just when I felt Belle needed to be tranquilized, she knocked out and stayed out until morning. How weird!
