The Magic of Childhood

Love it! As the mother of an equally spiritual boy, I can relate! What does he play now? RPGs? Is your TV hooked up to a Wii and a PS3 so that the family must negotiate to watch the ball game or a movie?

Two girls - same religion at my house. The battle lines are drawn, though. The meditation-time is limited throughout the week - and there is none at all on Sundays. The threat of detox is my most effective weapon. Shoes and clothing still magically appear where they belong, but as I'm the agent of that particular magic, there's no mystery there. I'm pretty tolerant of some of these lesser gods. As every good Christian knows - hate the sin, love the Sponge.

Dang, I could use some of that spiritual love. Call me a convert!

(Now, I just have to convince the Wife...)

You may think "Nintendoism" and "Transformerology" are strange and obscure cults. Take a earnest warning from me that the next steps could very well lead that boy to "Hentaianity" and "Yuriism".

You know you are even older when you hear a kid say, "My dad had a Game Boy!"

The more things change the more they stay the same. It was some 30 years ago when our son started down the path of Nintendoism, then GI Joe's, Sega, Turtles, Thundercats, Dreamcast, and my god the Lego's, mountains of them.
