Penguins on the Clock

| Comments

So, Benjamin is looking at YouTube videos and he says, “Daddy, some day, I want to go see an tock tick.”

I don’t quite make out what he is saying. “A what? A tock tick?”

“No, an tock tick. And penguins, ” Benjamin explains patiently.

Desperately scrambling for what he could possibly be thinking, I come up empty. “Benjamin, I have no idea what you are talking about,” I confess.

Now irritated at my stupidity, Benjamin petulantly replies, as if dealing with an idiot child, “You know. Penguins. In the Antarctic.”

I’m pleased with his ambition. Now I just got to get that kid some diction lessons. And a smarter Daddy.
