A Conversation With Charlie (Age 5) Wherein He Shatters the Myth

HIM: Dad, imagination is boring.
ME: What? It is?
HIM: Yeah. Imagining things. That's boring!
ME: Why do you say that?
HIM: Because you don't get to do anything. You don't go anywhere. You don't do anything. You just sit there and think.
ME: What's better than imagining things?
HIM: Doing stuff! Doing stuff is cool! Imagination is SO BORING!
ME: Well. Okay. You have a pretty good point there.

Of course he's right! The problem is, now you're going to have to start buying toys and crap. Those fleeting years kids actually believe in imagination - those are the golden years.
