I overheard Clara playing with a young boy at church this evening. After performing an impressive ninja kick off a chair he crouched down and asked her, “What is your favorite weapon?”
She thought for a moment, “Hmm, that’s a good question. I think I have three favorites. First,” she counted off her fingers, “a sword.” A quick wave of the hand. “Second, two machines that can do anything…” The boy looked appropriately shocked. “I don’t remember the last one though. But a sword and the two machines.” Then she took on an attack stance.
The boy blinked, obviously trying to decide his counter move against a girl with a sword and a pair of machines that can do anything.
