A cute story in lieu* of photos

My house is re-piped. The PVC glue smell is disapating - or maybe I'm just getting high on it and not noticing it so much anymore. And my water tastes better and I'm completely grossed out by what was inside the pipes - pipes that the water went through and I drank. YUCK. I have pictures, but they're on my laptop, so this is just a teaser. I also have pictures of the disaster the pipers created and well, the knowledge, but not the pictures that prove that they fixed it.

*******

So anyway, last night Landon asked me to read his favorite book. (Where favorite equals the one he has in his hand at any given moment.) It's My Truck is Stuck. So I read it to him.

And then he said "this time, I will read it all by myself."..."I might need a little help."

So we read through it again, he memorized certain lines which repeat throughout the book.

Then he said "I gonna read it again, all by myself." [Pause] "Wait, who's the illustrator?"

"Did you just ask me who the illustrator is?"

"Yeah."

"Do you even know what an illustrator is?"

"Yeah, the person who draws the pictures." [Complete with pretend drawing motion with his hands in case I'm a complete idiot.]

I am afraid of how smart this kid is going to be.

* After three attempts, I just googled it, I will never spell it right the first time, also I think there should be a "u" in forty, and maybe and extra "e" in twelve. Spell check may or may not have been invented specifically for me.
