*Nixon: I'm hungry.
Nixon: * exaggerated point to his own chest* We want toast!
Mac: Don't refer to yourself in the 3rd person, this ain't hollywood.
* There was another comic book signing at Third Eye Comics today. Nixon and I got there about 45 minutes before doors opened.
(Now there's this horrible stereotype that only children identify with adults better than kids their own age. I guess Nixon has it easier than some kids because his parents hang out with adults who are into "kid-like" things, like comics.)
While Mac was in line getting his comics signed by the writer Dennis Hopeless, Nixon was showing his Star Wars Angry Birds blind bag to illustrator Mike Norton. He simply walked over to him and said "Look at this" and then said when asked which one was his favorite Nixon pointed to the stormtrooper and said "he is". Then Mike Norton asked Nixon "which one do you think is my favorite?", Nixon said "Well, I think this one is" and pointed to Vadar.
The most amazing thing isn't that Nixon had a conversation, however short it was, with an adult about Star Wars Angry Birds. It was that no one standing in line or walking around the store thought it was odd to see a 4-year old and a grown man talking toys together.
