This week King has been a virtual cornucopia of memorable sayings.
We were watching a home video we had taken the previous night. King was throwing a suction cup ball at the t.v. screen. On one throw, he landed one directly on Curtis' on-screen crotch. King exclaimed:
Hey, Look! I hit Curtis' bullseye!
King and I were working on some Kirigami (variation of Origami that includes cutting). When Curtis came into the room and saw King wiping some of the paper scraps onto the floor he said, "Hey! Those don't belong there. Look at all those scraps on the floor. Clean those up." While I was explaining that the mess was an inevitable part of what we were doing, King was on his hands and knees picking up bits of paper and saying:
Look at all this failure!
King's teacher, Miss Erin, reported to me that he changed the wording of The Pledge of Allegiance and recited it as follows:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of DARK
and to the republic for which it stands,
one nation under God, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for LIGHT.
