8 years, 9 months.
As I was cleaning the bathrooms Saturday afternoon, I noticed that you grabbed several toothpicks as you were working on a Play-Doh project at the kitchen table.
Eventually, the commentary began:
“Hey Daddy, look! This snake totally just bit the other one but the the other snake stabbed him with the spikes on his back…”
I was happy to see your creativity in action. But I did have to point out that they reminded me more of tape worms. Once I showed you a picture of them on my phone, you easily agreed that you had indeed been unknowingly making and fight giant tapeworms.
Maybe that was better, actually- since tapeworms are arguably creepier than snakes.
