Niki, Button, Siah, and I were getting in the car to head to dinner. “Hey, Dad?” I said. “What would you like to eat for dinner? I’m thinking I’d like a purple hippopotamus. How bout you?” Niki joined in the fun, “I’d like a pink elephant!” The kids were laughing at our silliness. Then Siah chimed in and with his oh-so-ferocious face said, “Noooo! I want to eat a TERRORIST!”

I love that kid’s sense of justice!
