“Daddy, look at the picture I drew. They’re sad lizards.” My Five Year Old said.
“Why are they sad?” I asked.
“Because they can’t get off the paper.”
My Five Year Old, My Girlfriend, and I were driving when My Five Year Old pointed toward the sky. “Look, some airplanes were there. They left trails.” she said.
I glanced out the window and saw the white lines in the sky, “Yup” I answered.
Then, all of the sudden, My Five Year Old started getting excited. “Those trails make an X! And X marks the spot. That must mean, there is treasure is space!”
Then she turned to us and asked it as a question, “Is there treasure in space?”
“Oh yes,” I replied, “there is lots of treasure in space.”
My Five Year Old got more excited as she asked the follow up question, “Like, A MILLION?!?”
At this, I was just sitting there thinking “a million what?” but My Girlfriend smiled and answered, “More than that.”
My Five Year Old’s eyes got really wide and she said, “WOW!”
