From the boy who just informed me that he knows all about the differences between a black hole and a worm hole, and who is making plans in his head on building a moon colony, comes an announcement about his Christmas List. After his crack about my “birthing hips” earlier this week, I’m not really in the gift-giving mood.
How and why is the boy already turning his thoughts to December 25? Probably the same reason he thinks about worm holes and world peace.
So what DOES he want, I wondered. A C500 chemistry set that will allow him to blow up the largest ant pile ever? A Star Wars Legos jet fighter that can transport said bomb? His own kitchen shears? (keep reading)
NO. He wants an underground tunnel system. Apparently the elves can build this, he says. Maybe all the Doomsday Preppers shows have got him convinced he needs this tunnel system. All I know is, I’d better text Santa STAT so his little minions can get to work on digging! They have 7 months left…tick tock little elves! And I do hope the tunnel is wide enough to accommodate my birthing hips.
I know what’s on my wish list…New kitchen shears, seeing as how last night Justin was using them to cut insects in half, just for fun. A headless fire ant will dance around for quite some time, in case you were wondering.
