Rockstarism #219 – Just Make Up Something

#219 Rockstar: Mum. Do you know what Grandmum's favorite penguin is? Me: Grandmum has a favorite penguin? Rockstar: <nodding convincingly> Yeah. She does. Me: Uh... Why? Rockstar: <like he's making a big announcement> Her favorite is the King Penguin. It doesn't peck you. Me: You mean other penguins peck you? Rockstar:  <nodding convincingly> Yeah. They do. Me: Are you sure? Why?! Rockstar: I don't know. <shrugs> Ask Grandmum. Me: She didn't say anything about penguins, did she? Rockstar: <nodding convincingly> Yeah. She did.  Me: How does someone end up talking about penguins, anyway? Rockstar: I said, "What's your favorite penguin?" Me: I mean WHY does anyone ask what someone's favorite penguin is?? Rockstar: <like I'm stupid> Be-cause, I want to know what her favorite penguin is.

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    Madagascar 3’s just been released at the cinemas so perhaps he’s spotted the posters for the show? Or maybe, as you said in your reply to zmun2 that he’s read about them in one of his Nat Geo books

    Has he been watching Happy Feet or maybe any of the Madagascar series?

      Hasn’t watched either one… and he’s only watched Cars v recently…

    Pingu is my former boss’s favourite penguin!  This is a common question among the group of people using Linux OS. Was Rockstar reading a book about penguins? That would explain his question.

      Oh really?? Well pingu’s a cute name for a penguin 😀

      I don’t recall anything he’s got re penguins… My best guess is one of the national geog kids books must have some weird fact about penguins – it’s 300 facts per book and we have 3 books, there must b some penguin fact in there… Obviously I dunno all the facts 😛
