My six year old son just returned from a cub scout tour of our local fire station.
I asked him how it was.
“AWESOME!” he said.
The I asked him what part was is favorite. What was the coolest thing he saw? I mean, fire stations have everything: fire trucks, ladders, poles, cool uniforms, dalmatians- you know, fire station stuff.
Ian says “THEY HAD A WHITE BOARD. IT HAD MARKERS AND BIG ERASERS AND EVERYTHING!”
I said “You went to a fire station and the coolest thing you saw was a whiteboard?”
He said yes and promptly changed the subject to Harry Potter and swordfighting.
According to my husband they saw a 2000 foot hose, huge fuel tanks and a rescue boat and Ian’s favorite part was the living room. When I revisited this question 45 minutes later I was lectured on how the markers were Expo markers just like the ones in his classroom at school.
I will never understand boys. Never.
