Conversation with a three year old
January 12, 2008
“When I grow up I am going to be a doctor.”
“You are? How nice.”
“Yes. And I will cut people.”
“Oh, you mean like a surgeon. They cut people open and operate on them to make them all well again.”
“No. Not like that.”
“Not like that?”
“I will have a chainsaw.”
“And chop their heads off. And chop up their bodies.” Here he stands up on his chair and imitates how a chainsaw works and sounds.
“Just what our family tree has been lacking, Miles, a serial killer.”
