Cracking Open the Box

Anthony gets to pick his own present on his birthday. Last year when he turned five, he picked a train set. The year before, he picked a big garbage truck. This week, he turned six...

He has enjoyed playing with helicopters, been excited to watch a helicopter takeoff, and recently got to ride in a helicopter, so it wasn't too surprising that this year he chose for himself a helicopter, one from the same makers as his now fairly large train set.

Exaggerated “I Dunno” for Comic Effect

I'm not sure where he learned the silly exaggerated “I dunno” response, or exactly what he was joking about here, but I do recall that he was just being silly. A few seconds later he was back at his inspection....

Again, I don't remember what he was responding to. I wish I did.

I'm sure he's not thinking about the Ultra Thin Depth of Field one gets at f/1.2 lens -- Kyoto, Japan -- Copyright 2008 Jeffrey Eric Francis Friedl, http://regex.info/blog/
