A Conversation With Charlie (Age 5)

ME: If you had a whole day to do whatever you wanted, anything in the world, what would you do?
HIM: (thinks for a while) Yell.
ME: Yell?
HIM: Yeah. I'd yell a lot.
ME: I mean whatever you wanted. You could go anywhere you want, do anything, whatever you want.
HIM: I know.
ME: Yell?
HIM: Yeah. I really like yelling.
ME: Would there be anything else you would do besides the yelling? I can't imagine it would take the whole day.
HIM: I would be quiet too. I'd yell and then be quiet and then yell.
ME: Sounds fun.
