Genius, I tell you.
[telling stories on the way to school this morning]
Chago: "...and then the great big orange cat jumps into the water to save her."
Saia [getting all into it]: "Who, Santiago? Who is he going to save?"
Chago: "The white cat. She fell in the river and her fur got wet, but when he pulled her out and she dried off, she was soft and clean again, just like the white, white snow."
Great simile, boy!!! Damn proud Mama today.
