Tornado S and I have been reading Harry Potter together. We’re on book 4.
Tornado S: I’ve decided what I want to be for Halloween.
Me: Oh yeah?
Tornado S: Lord Voldemort.
Me: What?! (Come on. Still? Why? Why always a villain?! Why can’t you like heroes?! Honestly!) Really? How about Harry Potter? You would make a great Harry Potter. Or a student from Slytherin House.
Tornado S: I could go as a Death Eater.
Me: (Somehow that’s worse!) What? Why? Why must you always be a villain?
Tornado S: I went as the Emperor for years, and you were ok with it.
Me: Oh, honey. I wasn’t. I was just waiting for you to grow out of it.
Tornado S: I did grow out of it. I grew out of it to Lord Voldemort.
