Aloha!

Hi I’m 8 years old. Maria I love you’re podcast and I listen to it after school. I have an idea for twin goops - their names are Listeninna and neverlisteninna. Listeninna always listens and her twin sister never listens. I live in Italy and think they should go to the coliseum in Rome. And they both wear pink hats and yellow dresses. Neverlisteninna has a red rose flower she carry’s, and Listeninna carrys a plumeria. Thank you for making goop tales.
