(Should’ve been posted yest but having problems uploading pics…) On Sunday afternoon, sitting next to me Rockstar looks up abruptly from McQueen Legos…
Rockstar: <urgently> Mum! I need to get the laptop so you can learn about Mario Bros! There’s things you need to know about the game!
Me: N-ice try.
Rockstar: Hee hee yeah I think so.
Later in the evening…
Rockstar: This Mario Bros is so, soooo fiction. Not fact. Tsk!
Rockstar: Look at this guy. He’s swimming in the water and he’s surrounded by… fireballs! That is so not real!
Me: You thought the giant mushrooms and being chased by pink snails was real?
Rockstar: But- but- this is so not real! It’s fireballs. In water. You can still have mushrooms and snails.
Skip on the rocks, collect Starbucks latte and strawberry scone, avoid maniacally waving monster baby, Rockstar’s the proverbial “boss villain” at the end of the game stage…
