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.”
“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”)
(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.”
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.
