A scene from my life

Scene: hot playground, red dust stirring in the air, sweaty kids running around. Two Kindergarten kids sitting at a picnic table, back to it, and heads resting on the table, legs swinging, looking up to the blue sky and clouds. I sit down.

How are you?
Girl: I'm tired and sleepy.
What ya doing?
Girl: "Looking at clouds. See, that one's a mouse!"
"No," says the boy, "It's a camel with one hump."

They went on, admiring the dragon, the cat, and the eagle as the cumulus marched across the sky. Just in case you thought kids didn't do that anymore.
