My nephew is a wonderful child. He just turned five and has such an adorable imagination. He certainly gets his creativity from his writer aunt! A few months ago, he called his mom while she was at work. As you can imagine, my sister nearly had a heart attack, thinking it was an emergency.
It wasn’t. He just wished to let her know that she forgot her book at home. (He is always that helpful and he knows a girl without her book is lost).
So that led to a long conversation when she got home about only calling in a real emergency—if the house was on fire or someone was bleeding, things like that.
My nephew thought about it for a moment and then asked, “So if aliens landed on our roof, would that be an emergency?”
Yep, that’s a budding young author if there ever was one.
