Prime Directive

A new rule went into effect in our home today; there is to be no Wii between the hours of 9 and 3 on a school day. This is not a very popular rule. Toa of Boy almost perished through the long, terrible withdrawal. Yet, in the end he decided to use his free time to make a picture with his 3d paint set and build a complex lego spaceship.

He brought his lego spaceship into the kitchen to show me. He was describing wall the different decks and such and then said, "Guess what, Mommy? This ship doesn't have any guns."

"Really?" says his hippy-at-heart Mommy. "Is it an exploration vessel?"

"No, it has lazers!"

Of course.

The show and tell session then became a description of exactly how many ways this "gun-less" vessel could destroy other spacecraft.
