The Seagull Pilot
He's told this story 3 times already. Very consistently, I might add. But it's completely invented -- at least as far as we can tell. We haven't found anything to link it to (e.g., a book or video), and he's even gone so far as to tell me that it all started from a dream. Yesterday, he even repeated it to his Tio Donny. Didn't leave out a single detail. And I just find it absolutely incredible that he's already a storyteller -- already -- at 2 1/2!!! He even uses his hands when he talks, for crissakes!
So, apparently, he was riding in this "big enormous" airplane with a seagull. And the seagull wanted to fly the plane, but couldn't hold the steering wheel because, obviously, he has no hands. So he opened the door and let the seagull fly away, but before it got too far he reached out and pulled it back in by the tail. Recognizing the seagull was now injured, he bandaged it up himself because, of course, he's the doctor in this tale. Once the seagull was all better, he decided that since he did have hands, he would just fly the plane himself. And he flew it all the way to Texas.
