Tales from Spring Break Round Three, Part Two

Got all that?

Taking a break from the pirate game during a recent field trip to a local playground.

On discovering the foam sword display at iParty, The Five-Year-Old, nonchalantly: “We have these at my preschool.”

Daddyo: “You have foam swords at preschool?”

The Five-Year-Old, informatively: “Yeah, we play pirates with them.”

Daddyo: “Huh.”

The Five-Year-Old: “Yeah. I’m on the good pirates’ team.”

Daddyo, incredulously: “You have teams at preschool where you pretend to be pirates and fight each other with swords?”

The Five-Year-Old: “Yeah. Or French fries.”


About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When Iā€™m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
