Creating a New Life Form

My eight-year-old son came home from school today, all excited.  "Mama!  We're doing science in school!"

"Cool," I said.  "Science is fun!"

"Guess what?"  he continued.  "I'm going to do a science experiment."

"Oh yeah?  What kind?" I asked.

He thought about that.  "I'm going to create a new life form!"

"Well, that sounds like a pretty good trick," I said.  "Exactly how are you going to do that?"

He was quiet for a second.  "I'll have to do some research, but I think I'm going to make a Bowser."

(Bowser, in case you don't know, is a character from the Mario video games.)

My daughter, who had been listening to this conversation put her two cents in.  "I know how you can make a Bowser."

"How?" I asked.

"Find the world's largest turtle and cross it with the world's largest chicken."

"Brilliant!"  I said.

So now we're on the lookout for the world's largest turtle and chicken.  If you happen to find them, please let us know!

    1. I think my kids got an extra dosage of imagination when they got baked in the oven. The things they come up with amaze me!

    1. Hmmm. That could be a problem. I'll have to tweak the genetics to make sure he's not overly violent. LOL!
