Mad Genius


Imagine my surprise when I walk into Super Son's room to find this



"What in the name of Sam Hill is this?" I ask, trying not to laugh.

At which point he poked his head out grinning like a loon.

"Mama, I built a base!

It's safe too!

Nerf bullets can't get through!"

He was all ammo'd up and stocked for the impending zombie apocalypse . . . or something.

I tried to explain that zombies probably wouldn't be 
bothered by nerf bullets, but he could not be dissuaded.

Sheet fort base building with hangers is important business! 

Geesh




There were lots of knots involved.

Knots in sheets

knots in sweat pants

knots in sweaters.




And hangers.

Don't let me forget to show you the hangers.

This is apparently a really important part of the construction that allows flaps,
but keeps the nerf bullets from making their way through.




Strange thing is that it actually held up for 3 days.

At which point the twitch just under my left eye made it
necessary to dismantle the base until another day.

I'm guessing he will surprise me again tomorrow.

Until then I'll just have to hope the zombies don't show up.
