little kid is really into reading this year.
His teacher offers full-size candy bars to kids who reach a certain reading goal, and that just sparked the love of literature into a full-on inferno.
"Mom, if you could have a Lamborghini or 9 really nice bookcases full of your favorite books, which would you pick?"
"The Lamborghini," I said without pause.
"What? I have a Kindle and a library card. No one's lending me a Lamborghini."
"You know what I would pick, mom?"
"I'd pick the books. Because I could read them all and get the knowledge and get into a good college and get a good job and get my own Lamborghini AND still have the books."
"That is an amazing answer! I'm really proud of you! I am so impressed by your motivation this year!"
"Now what would you pick?"
"Still the Lambo."
This kid's going places.
Maybe I'll even drive him there in my Lamborghini.
