Spent a couple days with a stomach bug while in Minnesota. Miles (3.5 yrs) was concerned, and tended to my spirits one day by bringing me a series of Lego assemblages, which he called “secret agent tools” (he alternately referred to them as “old fashioned”). He’d disappear for five minutes, come trundling back upstairs with a new one, lay some terminology on me, and vanish again. Had a laptop with me in bed, so took notes, which I’ve left unedited here.
secret agent tool – shoots orange juice and pancake syrup and apple juice and clouds. when it shoots out clouds that brings dinosaurs back to the world. And the secret agent tool makes a sound like “Mooooo.”
crab claw – bites a crab and then the farmer fire axes the crab – the farmer shoots the crab with a fire axe and then people can eat the crab for dinner.
“I’m going to make three more toys for you because I’m nervous that my daddy is sick because he’s my special friend, so I’m going to make three more and then that’s all” (he made a total of eight more).
The second toy was called “iceberg tabasky headphones” and it m n nn nb
The third toy was a “Vizerator” or “paper cleaner” and you put paper in a hole and people made new paper
the fourthest toy – shooted out fire and then people could cut down old trees. You can also hold this one.
the fivest toy: shoots out canonballs – “The Sockador” – for cutting down old trees and the swords will come back to life and people can hold them. You can hold this one.
The next one is an evaporator — it cleans up the old garbage and old pieces of paper and the fire dragons come back to life.
this one is “evaporator 2” and it cleans paper AND keyboards.
a keyboard typer big tragasky panpot aggregator – it spurts some goo from here and it cleans out people from here and then the dinosaurs live in the futures.
then he stuck a tire in my eye and said “you get these rings for being so helpful today.”
