07:17 am: Skateboard in the Car

Juss: "Mom! My old gameboy is broken!"

Mommy: "Here let me help you." I poke at the red binoculars he calls his 'gameboy.'  "Is that better?"

Juss: "But, Mom, my character's still not moving!"

Mommy: "I'll try again."

Juss: "Now his feet aren't moving!"

Mommy: "I'll change the battery." I poke it again.

Juss, departing: "Great! Thanks, Mom!"


This is the boy who cried at the age of three because he left his invisible skateboard in the car.

I foresee many years of gm-ing success for him.

I'm still trying to figure out how Ben sweet-talked his uber-health conscious nature teachers into buying him a sprite.
Probably without words, too.
I'm betting he used the coy-yet-persistent-urchin approach. Worked for me when I was his age.

That's hilarious! Maybe they thought it was too hot not to have a drink or something, but still. What a little guy!

He had a whole bottle of water--with refills! So this was clearly a successful con.
