While I am helping my niece with her homework (a 4-year-old with homework, lot has changed since my toddler days), my nephew is busy playing the Skylanders video game on the X-Box.
Nephew: Uncle Fish, how do you spell “death”?
Me: Just like you have it one the screen, except add an ‘A’ after the ‘E’.
Nephew: Thanks, I’m renaming my Skylander “Death Blade”
From an almost seven-year-old, it’s kind of weird watching him run around what is essentially a kids game with his Skylander “Death Blade”.
It doesn’t help that I’m reading On Killing by Col. Grossman.
As to why he calls me Uncle Fish, that’s a whole ‘nother blog post.
