+Vincent Florio .
We caught two trains (and just missed a diesel) before I told the young lady we had to head back home.
"I have a phone call with a friend in a few minutes, and we need to go now."
"Whose your friend?"
"Where does Vince live?"
"Mommy has a friend that lives in Texas. Only one friend in each state. Vince needs to live in... Tennessee!"
"Heh. I'll let him know."
"Whatcha gonna talk to Vince about Uncle?"
"Well, we are going to talk about Dungeons & Dragons."
"What's Dumgems & Dragons?"
"It's a game where you play heroes, and the heroes explore the wilderness or the underground and they beat up monsters (I left out the -and take their stuff - part)"
"I wanna be a monster! I wanna be a dragon! Or a troll! Or a dinosaur! Or a alligator! Can I be a dragon, uncle?"
"Sure Pinky, You can be a dragon."
"Uncle, can you teach me about Dumgems & Dragons when I get older. 'Cause I'm only 3 now."
"Heh. Yes Pinky. I'll teach you about Dungeons & Dragons whenever you want. Remember uncle's dice, and your own dice? You use those dice in Dungeons & Dragons."
"I'm going to breath fire!" and she proceeded to puff her cheeks four times, blowing out air before taking a needed breath for the next puff.
She's not yet four, and already she has the gaming bug and an amazing imagination.
Something tells me she will be gaming sooner than later...
