Teach them well for they are the future of blogging

I drooped my four-year old son off at school today and watched as he started a drawing. He was watching the smart Asian girl across the table as she traced around her hands to make two purple hand shapes on the paper.

My son had a go but declined to actually include the fingers in his effort -- it looked like a mitten or a boxing glove (or more like a mitten or boxing glove than a hand at any rate). So he started putting little circles in the mitten.

'This is an alien and these are his eyes.' He said. Then he drew another vague shape sticking out from the mitten.

'The alien is spitting out a chicken which is wearing a chef's hat.'

[Wipes tear from eye.] I could not be more proud.

An alien spitting out a chicken wearing a chef's hat.

Now why didn't George Lucas think of that?

Yeah, well, with genes like that, what do you expect?

By the time your son grows up, blogging will be a thing of the past, along with transister radios and sonoragrams.

It's a pity Slaughterhouse 5 isn't in picture book form.

Because Lucas lacks the imagination of a 4-year-old.

That sounds like the coolest drawing ever. $1 million plus at Sotheby's, for sure.
