My son was playing this video game called Minecraft, and he was telling me that his fountain that he built (he can’t even make a grilled cheese sandwich, so I don’t know how he built a fountain) had squids in it. Actually, he makes a pretty good sandwich . . . me on the other hand, well, that’s another blog entry all itself. But I know I can’t build a fountain, with or without squids. And I digress.
Apparently this is a common problem with fountains in Minecraft.
So like any good father, I used this opportunity for teaching . . .
When life gives you squids. . . make calamari.
He doesn’t like calamari. But neither do I. But I’m sure there’s a valuable lesson in there somewhere. Sell the calamari to someone who like it.
