t: :-)

me: tonight he was crying about being picked on at school for the way he reads

t: is he is ok?

me: i told him one time i wanted him to have a purple crayon like that little kid harold in those books

me: ever seen those?

t: nope

me: harold has a purple crayon and lives on a black piece of paper world where he creates his own world

me: if he wants a chair he draws one

me: if he wants to eat ice cream he draws it

t: :-)

me: he walks down streets that he draws

me: when he wakes up in the morning he draws a window with the sun outside

t: :-)

me: so.... i tell "bucky" always to remember he has his own purple crayon

me: so tonight he was all bummed out
