06:14 pm: Overheard at the Wright Household

Daddy, on the subject of whether or not the boys had to eat all of the dinner.

"Yes. Because we are training you to be a guru. Gurus are people who can walk on hot coals, sleep on beds of nails, and eat unidentified vegetables."



John: "I am starting a new roleplaying game, the Kitchen Sink Game. You can play any character you can think of."

Juss, without losing a beat, "Can I play Galactus?"

John: "No."

You left out the funniest part. I said Juss could play Kid Galactus, who is younger than Galactus, and only eats asteroids and small moons.

I put that on my Facebook version. Allan responded:

"Or Galactus who will get to destroy and devour the universe.. . only after he does the dishes like mommy says. .."

I'm thinking it's more advantageous to eat veggies than worlds!

"Cthulu?" "No." "The Oyarsa of Malacandra?" "No!" "Q?" "From Bond?" "From Trek." "No."

What is funny is that this is the same boy who once played Cosmos Boy--who could do anything so long as he was in a Cosmos. He felt this was a sufficient limitation, and there was one moment in the game--run by his brother Orville--where they were outside the Cosmos.

In the same game, John played Aquaman. His power: talk to fish.

Hierarchies of power

Right now I'm laughing so hard I can hardly breathe.

Which is good [for others] because I had garlic and onions in my salad.

I never forget that my son when he was seven would read aloud speed limit signs as "Fifty-five ooomp!"

Sometimes he would ask how much "oomph!" our car had. "Plenty! More than enough!"
