Rockstar still likes to scrawl really quick “cartoons” with a perm marker… “Lunarotato” is a new one, we agreed on the spelling after Rockstar explained “It rhymes with ‘potato’…” We haven’t decided if he’s a robot because on the one hand all moon equipment names start with “Lunar-something,” but then Rockstar also insists he needs a helmet, implying he breathes Oxygen. (For real – we reached this impasse this morning…)
Both Lunarotato and Zippety wear helmets, but not Yeeka. Rockstar initially said “He just doesn’t wear the helmet in the ship cos it would make him crazy,”
but has recently conceded he’s an alien.
(I know, it’s amazing how I went from derivative investment products to being fascinated by this)
Also interesting (fine, kind of) is that Yeeka is much taller and expecting a baby brother – like one of Rockstar’s friends from another class who towers over him…
Me: When you inhale, what do you breathe?
Me: Very good, and when you exhale?
Rockstar: When I exhale….. Air comes out.
Me: You forgot “Carbon Dioxide,” didn’t you?
Rockstar: Yeah. Hee.
Me: Daddy’s cooking Bak Kut Teh tonight. Let’s go out there and say “Mmm, what’s that yummy smell?”
Rockstar: Or, we could jump out at him and say “BOO!!”
