Tonight at dinner, Jonathan regaled us with the exciting goings-ons as school. He started with “Buenas tardes” in a perfect accent (to our gringo ears.)
Later he went on to tell us about two men kizing (kissing?) This was right on the heals of a conversation about some new teachers at school, so Brooke and I began inquiring…
Charlotte: “Jonathan, men don’t kiss other men. Stop making up stories.”
Jonathan, hand on his forehead in exasperation: “Two men keelling. I saw one man keeling another man!” (killing!?)
Holy cow! What is going on down there? Did Jonathan witness some violent awful act?! (Stay calm, he doesn’t seem to be too shaken up.)
“Jonathan, what are you talking about? Did you see someone fighting?”
“Where? At school?”
“Upstairs in the bonus room. Pocahontas!”
“You were watching Pocahontas?”
ahhh…. (speech about real life vs. movies deleted.)
Movie times Part 2
In the bonus room we have an antique machine that plays movies on these black things that always need rewinding. We also have many antique videos such as Star Wars, Snow White, Lady and the Tramp. You get the idea.
More than once, we have heard a thump-thump-thump excited sprint to the top of the stairs followed by an enthusiastic scream: “Mom! Dad! Lion King coming to a theater near you!”
Its like a time machine!
