3206a

3206b
SCENE 1 Maria is fixing the toaster of the Fairy Godmother. Maria finds it odd that she doesn't just fix it with magic; the Fairy Godmother replies that she only uses it for special occasions. For instance, she uses it right now to poof up her to-do list (without it, she'd be utterly lost with her priorities). Maria goes inside to work on it, while the Godmother goes off to do her errands.
