Allusions

We were eating fortune cookies, and everyone had opened theirs and “read” their fortunes.  “Read” meaning we read the fortunes for the younger boys.

I was the last to open mine.

Me: You will find love on Flag day.

Tornado E: Mommy!  That’s the Simpsons!

We’ve been watching episodes on DVD since their father told them they could.  I’m excited that Tornado E is starting to understand allusions and their importance to comedy.

Me: Good job, little dude.

Tornado E: Did it really say that?

Ok, he’s eight.  This is going to take a little time.
