Lisa: one track mind

While I was setting up the auditorium for our "War of the Worlds" No Girls Allowed program, a four-year-old boy wandered in and gasped with delight at the alien party streamers I was draping around the edge of a table. He picked up a stuffed puppet.

Boy: "Look! Two zombies on there!"
Lisa: "I think those are supposed to be astronauts."
B: "Astronauts! And they're in a planet!"
L: "Um, I think that's a space ship."

He picked up another stuffed toy.

B: "This one is a zombie!"
L: "That one's an alien."
B: "..."
L: "Do you know what an alien is?"
B: "Aliens aren't even real! They live in space! They couldn't be on Earth because that would be CRAZY!"
L: "Yeah."
B: "So why are you decorating with all these zombies?"
L: "And astronauts and aliens?"
B: "Yeah!!"
L: "Well, because we're having a program today about aliens and outer space."
B: "AND ZOMBIES????!!!!"

So very great. This is what makes your blog a classic. And I do think of myself as an expert on your blog having recently spent four days reading the entire thing from the beginning, all the while neglecting my job that I get paid for. But it was so very very worth it. One thing it being 4:20. Have you ever heard of people who smoke pot getting creative and making bongs out of everyday household objects? Yeah they think in terms of "see that toaster I could totally make a bong out of that." Well my point is....since I have now read your entire blog for the past four days I think in terms of crafts. As in..."This computer sure could use a cozy" and "I could make a birdfeeder out of this Dr. Pepper bottle." Sorry long comment. But it had to be said.

Wait, why are there zombies at your war of the worlds party?

Also why are there no girls allowed?

There were no zombies. He just wanted there to be zombies so very, very much.

THAT is precisely why I LOVE four year olds!
