Isaac: ‘Dad. Find some termites eating wood, and then eat them. You can tell me what wood tastes like.”
[Context: Isaac loves the tale of my eating termites straight from a mound in the jungle. Just lick your finger and they will stick to it. Mine tasted like mint, because they were eating grass.]
Richard: “What was the best part of school today?”
Isaac: “Music class, definitely. We sang a fun song.”
Richard: “What is your music teacher’s name?”
Isaac: “Mr. Music.”
Richard: “Do you know his real name?”
Isaac: “Mr. Mozart.” [slowly smiles ear-to-ear].
Richard [watching Boundless with Isaac]: “I don’t want to hear you using those words Turbo says.”
Isaac: “I don’t know what he says. He just says “BEEP”!”
Isaac [headed out the door]: “I’ll be back in a bit. I have to go outside and fix a spear.”
Isaac [quite upset and sad upon learning that Arctic ice is melting and may disappear]: “That can’t happen! We still have too much to learn about it.”
Richard: “Well, maybe you should become an Arctic ice scientist. You might do important work.”
Isaac: “No. I like Ice Cream. I’m going to sell Ice Cream.”
