My 9-year-old son Orlando is going through a phase(r) of being into everything Star Trek.
He thinks it’s cool that dad knows so much about Star Trek and has cool Star Trek stuff – like the thermo dynamic mug where the characters in the transporter room “disappear” or “appear” if you add hot or cold liquid. Hot to make them disappear – cold to cool it down and make the characters appear.
Orlando “teaches” me about the new Star Trek movies.
I’m teaching him about the old Star Trek TV show.
He can be “hyperactive” and always bouncing around or talking about Star Trek or zombies.
I’ve found a way to get some peace – At his suggestion – I “act” in pretending to give him a Vulcan Nerve Pinch and he pretends to sleep for a while.
“How long does a person stay asleep, Daddy?“ he asks.
