Last week, I found the small people playing a new game.
Apparently, itâ€™s called â€œLookout.â€
I noticed my eldest was holding a telescope, so I asked them what they were looking out for.
Their answer was illuminating.
â€œWe donâ€™t know. Stuff.â€
â€œLike pirates?â€ I asked excitedly.
Pause. â€œCould be.â€
â€œSaber-toothed alien robots?â€ I tried.
They just stared at me.
â€œOh, I know. Itâ€™s either Star Wars or Indiana Jones or Lord of the Rings fighters of some sort,â€ I guessed, based on the latest recurring small people themes.
â€œUm, not really.â€
â€œBad guys?â€ I offered weakly.
Pause. â€œI suppose.â€
Know what I think?
â€œLookoutâ€ is just an excuse to hang out.
Which is fine by me.
