Vivid Imagination

“You don’t see me because of my powers of invisibility!” Dylan proclaimed as he passed me in the dining room.

“Oh, my goodness! Where are you? I can hear you, but I can’t see you!”

“I’m in the hallway. I’m going down to the bathroom.”

“Okay, let me know when you come out since I can’t see you….”

“I’m out now, and you can see me because I’ve turned my powers of invisibility off!” said Dylan as he marched back through the dining room. “I’m now going to use my spider powers to jump and shoot webs.”

“Okay, then! Would you like a nice cockroach for breakfast since you are a spider?”

“I’m NOT a spider! I said I have spider POWERS!” he declared with disgust at my obtuseness. “Now I will use my flying powers and fly away!”

We have this kind of conversation frequently. Did I have an imagination like that when I was four? I don’t *think* so, but then again, I really don’t remember that much from then!

    Kaylee was a fly yesterday. She buzzed past me, flapping her hands, and I was supposed to swat her with the flyswatter. It was difficult, as Grandpa was rubbing my feet at the time. Still, SO much fun!

    Hunh. I wonder if they’re going to eventually work their way up through the animal kingdom and become reptiles?
