Little Miss Thing, age 6: “Stop hurting those animals!”

Me: “It’s just a video game, sweetie. Just pictures on a screen. I mean, it’s a blue skinned High Elf shooting giant rats with magic fireballs. Clearly this is not real life.”

LMT: “Aaaah! Stop, Drop and Roll, little guys!”

Me: “You’re taking a lot of the fun out of this.”

LMT: “Good.”
