Drama king

Filed under: Hooper — Lex @ 8:30 pm

Like a lot of kids, Hooper plays with Thomas the Tank Engine trains, and like a lot of kids, he makes up dialogue for his toys. But I don’t think I’ve come across another kid whose dialogue sounds as if it is being read from a book, complete with omniscient narration, even when it’s being composed on the fly in the back seat of a moving car:

“James chugged alongside Thomas. ‘Are you OK?’ he asked.” “‘Yes, I’m fine,’ said a grumpy Thomas.”

Cool. Theater for 3-year-olds.
