Ryan: Okay, Mom, but first I need to kill all of the ancient warriors.
Me: Uh, okay.
Ryan: Well, they're not all dead yet. But then I'll move the basket.
Sometimes, I have no idea what is happening inside his brain. Huh.
UPDATE: This, from my husband:
This reminded me of a conversation he & I had at lunch (you were upstairs, I think).
(Ryan has four LEGO peopleguys standing outside of a turned-over red basket, talking quietly to each other. Inside the basket is the LEGO skeleton, lying on its back).
Me: Ryan, what are those guys doing?
Ryan: This is a burial ground. They're burying the soldiers who were killed in battle.
Ryan: Yes, it was a big battle and there's going to be a lot of bodies in there.
So -- that's what's happening inside his brain. It's a... um... crypt.
Isn't that cute?
