Wordless Wednesday: Spock’s secret mission

Recently, The Six-Year-Old discovered the 1973 animated Star Trek series on Netflix. Her favorite episode, naturally, is More Tribbles, More Troubles. Her next favorite is any episode featuring Mr. Spock.

The Six-Year-Old and Mr. Spock have become especially good friends over the past few weeks. He’s taken to leaving her little notes whenever he goes on missions, like this one, which I found at The Six-Year-Old’s favorite breakfast spot this morning.

The Six-Year-Old only grudgingly gave me permission to share it with you on Caterpickles, on condition that I:

(a) wait until Mr. Spock returned safely from his covert mission, and

(b) erased his code name to avoid compromising future missions.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    Almost as good as my first (and only) Star Trek story!
