Last night we had a nice dinner at Chad and Pauline's, and we were joined by their friends Liza and Eric and their son, Paolo. Paolo is a little younger than Lucy, and he is a typical boy, despite his crunchy parents' best intentions: Paolo likes guns the way Lu likes princesses. They had a lot of fun together. At one point, they ran onto the back porch hollering and growling...
Lucy, wielding a small dumb-bell and one of those handles you do push-ups with: "WE ARE HERE TO KILL!!!"
Paolo, brandishing an aluminum bat and kicking at the air: "THESE SHOES ARE FOR DESTROYING!!!"
Lucy: "I AM A VOLCANO QUEEN AND I AM GOING TO EXPLODE LAVA ON YOU."
Paolo: "AND YOU ARE GOING TO DIE."
Could this mean she is trading her crown for a weapon?
