So, a week or two back, Firstborn asked if I would play "the Ghost Vampire Game" so he could watch. I'm not sure this is entirely age-appropriate, but what the heck; at least his first introduction to vampires won't involve any sort of sparkling. (Vampires in the Soul Reaver games are tragic, grotesque, and/or monstrous in varying degrees.) This led to the following conversation on the way to school this morning:
Firstborn: "I'd like to be Raziel."
Me: "Raziel is cool, but that might not be as cool as you think. He has no tummy. You know what no tummy means?"
Firstborn: looks interested.
Me: "No tummy means you can't eat waffles."
Firstborn: "But I could eat ghosts."
Me: "Well, yes. But... I don't know how ghosts taste, but I don't think they taste as good as waffles."
So, I don't know, guys. I'm not sure I'm winning this one. What do you think? Ghosts, or waffles?
