My Son is a Video Projector

Mother T. Fox explains what is a slave.
J: Was Aladdin's Genie also a slave?
T Fox: Sort of yes.
J: I'd like to be Genie, although I'd also like to have the wishes.
T Fox: Well, what would you wish for? [thinks about health, happiness, human brains, horses, holidays and humbug]
J: First I'd like to be the mightiest of all the sorcerers. But a nice one.
T Fox: Okay.
J: The second one: I'd want to be an ice-cream bar.
T Fox: Well...that's interesting.
J: And finally I'd want to have all the world's movies uploaded inside my brain and show them to others on my belly.
T: Err...

Words in Finnish:
orja = a slave
toive = a wish
jäätelöbaari = an ice-cream bar
elokuva = a movie

He's clearly a very charitable type. You can be proud. (Hurrah. I knew elokuva and ice-cream.)

Come to think of it, he really is, and actually all his wishes were something, where he could make others' wishes come true. Actually he might be smarter than I thought. (Or just wanted to make sure he could watch movies and eat as much ice-cream as he ever wants.)

I wondered if your cub had been inhaling the smoke from whatever drugs you are on when you write Superlon, but now I see he's actually a caring, sensitive soul. So I won't say a word.

I think it's a nice thing to wish for. Quirky, but sweet.

Now I know why I have to keep losing weight; I would be a wide-screen projector.

Thank you all for your comments :)
Dave, you've changed your name?
S-C, I'm aiming for a flat panel.

Your kids are marvellous.

Taiga the Fox said...

Thanks, Annie. They are also very loud and noisy.
