The New Wish List

...while tucking Noah into bed last night...

Noah: Mom, can I have a real drum set with drums and a real cymbal and drumsticks, PLEEEEEZE???

Mama: Ummm... well... that sounds really loud. And where would we keep it? There is no more room against any of our walls. We would have to get rid of your bookshelf, or your piano, or your toy box to make room for it. Which one should we get rid of??

Noah: Okay...

(beat)

Noah: How about a bucket with a hole in the side, some gunpowder and a fuse?

He really, really said that. It was from a video he saw of a Rube Goldberg machine that used a lot of fire and chemicals. Part of it was a fuse that caused a bucket of some powder to explode.

And he wants one...

...sigh...
