A good photojournalist is always prepared

What The Five-Year-Old carries (Image: Mommyo)

Last weekend, Mommyo found The Five-Year-Old in the entryway busily stocking her backpack with gear for our trip to the New Bedford Summerfest, and as Mommyos will do, felt compelled to give advice.

Mommyo: “The Five-Year-Old, if you’re going to put your water bottle next to your camera, you need to be sure the cap is screwed on tight.”

The Five-Year-Old: “Why?”

Mommyo: “Why do you think?”

The Five-Year-Old: “Because it might leak and then water would get all over my camera and break it forever.”

Pause. The Five-Year-Old, aghast: “And then I couldn’t be a journalist any more!”

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 I’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.
