SON’s NOTES: TRIPTYCH

The following are three minor fragments of conversations with the kiddo that I wrote down and recently discovered.

TV IN CAVEMAN TIMES

“In caveman times, when they watched TV, it wouldn’t be bad for them – they could use spider webs.”

“For what?”

“To watch TV. There would only be dangerous shows – like the spider getting the bug.”

 

DIMENSIONALITY AND TIME TRAVEL

“Your brain could be the fifth dimension – if you went to the past, and you weren’t born, and you didn’t have a mom, you would be in your brain forever.”

(draws a picture of “adoring a baby to help the second dimension”)

 

UFOs

(picks up a book on UFOs)

“I think this is non-fiction.”

(reads first page)

“See, I told you this was non-fiction. They come from another planet. They are discoverers.”

 

 

ADDENDUM

I was really surprised to come see this amazing ring of treasures laid out so carefully – it just goes to show that if there isn’t a big neat swingset in the yard, or a backyard pool, kids will come up with interesting ways to have fun. At least, mine will.
