WE HAVE A KING 1-31-2006

PJ said to me as he was going to bed. "Dad, did you know that we have a king?"

"A king?" I said.

"Yeah, King Kong. He's this great big strong monkey!"

"King Kong?" I repeated, a little confused.

"But he's not the strongest monkey."

"Who is the strongest monkey?"

"Junior."

"Junior?"

"You know, in that arcade game with Mario? Junior catches his dad from like three stories. He wears a big J on his chest."

He was talking about "Donkey Kong Junior" one of the arcade games we play on in the basement. In his world, movies and video games all sort of intersect with the real world.

"PJ?" I said.

"yes?"

"Good night, PJ."
