Cute Query

A funny story I wanted to share.

I have an 8-year-old son who is a very cre­ative lit­tle guy. Many nights he writes a jour­nal, and includes things about his day, some stream-of-consciousness poems, book reviews, or short non-fiction essays. Occa­sion­ally, he writes a story. Recently he wrote about a bacon-loving Yeti, who earned money to pur­chase bacon by clear­ing snow-filled dri­ve­ways. When it hadn’t snowed for sev­eral days, and his bacon sup­ply was dimin­ished, he bor­rowed a snow-making machine to clog up his town with plenty of the white stuff, thereby ensur­ing him end­less employ­ment. It worked; his bacon stash (which he kept under his bed) was a healthy size once again.

I thought his story was well done. “That’s really, really cre­ative,” I told him. “Really well done. Super job. You’re a great storyteller.”

You think so?” Then he looked at me, nar­rowed his eyes, said, “Should we call your agent?”
