Gabie-ism, Olympic edition

I'm explaining the Olympics to Gabie last night. I tell him about the different medals: the bronze, silver and gold. He interrupts me and says "There's no way it's solid gold. I'll bet it has a steel core....And who gets the aluminum medal? Cause aluminum would be a good thing to make one out of. It would be lighter. And you could take it camping."

I'd love to say I've had the same thought but alas, that Gabie is smarter than I'll ever be.

Because if you were to win an Olympic medal the very first place that you would want to take your prize is on a camping trip. Obviously!

So you have long inspired me with the way that you intertwine your reflections on life with pieces of art. If you didn't live so many states away, I would want to register for one of your classes. As it is, I wrote a little post about a piece of art that moved me deeply, and I thought would like to see how you have inspired a “cyber-pupil.” It’s called Cloudy Days.

We're poor. If we hosted the Olympics at our house, all the shiny medals would be constructed from genuine aluminum foil.

That's so funny. I've always wondered what you would do with a medal after winning it, really. I guess if you didn't have a display case you could just use it camping!
