@ comes into room carrying his loose change. Mostly 100 and 200 Local Currency coins , worth 1 to 2 pennies.
@: look at all the money I have.
Me: that's a lot of money. You're rich.
@: I'm bigger rich.
Me: what are you going to do with all that money?
@: I'm going to buy stuff when I grow up.
Me: what kind of stuff would you buy?
@: a vacuum cleaner.
Me: A vacuum cleaner. Why a vacuum cleaner?
@: to clean the house.
Me: what would you clean with the vacuum cleaner.
@: the floors in my house.
Me: Do you need a vacuum for the floors in your house.
@: I will.
Me: What kind of floors will you have?
@: I don't know.
@ has lived in a carpeted house for maybe 9 months of his 5 years of life. Where he got the idea that he needed a vacuum is beyond me. Vacuum cleaners are one of my least favorite appliances and I never miss not using them.
