IMG_3621[1]

NICK: Dad?

ME: Yes.

NICK: You know what this tank can do?

ME: What?

NICK: It can shoot! With it’s gun!

ME: I know!

NICK: And you know what?

ME: What?

NICK: The soldiers say “Shoot the enemy! Shoot the enemy!” And then know what?

ME: What?

NICK: The tanks goes “Rrrrrrrrrrrrr…” And it’s gun goes up! Daddy?

ME: Yes?

NICK: On my other tank? The one at home? The gun doesn’t go up. It goes around. But this one goes up.

ME: Cool.

NICK: Dad? Do you like this tank?

ME: Yeah!

NICK: Was it expensive?

ME: No. It was only fifty cents.

NICK: Why?

ME: Well, it was used. When you buy something at a flea market, you’re buying something that’s a little old, a little used and maybe someone was just trying to get rid of it.

NICK: Why?

ME: I don’t know. I guess they didn’t want it anymore?

NICK: Why?

ME: I don’t know. Maybe someone had a lot of toys and then they got older and just didn’t want all their toys anymore so they took them to the flea market.

(Pause)

NICK: Dad?

ME: Yes.

NICK: I love this tank. I’m never gonna give it away.
