Eggmus: Stories

There is a railroad crossing on my partner's current route home from work. This means that every once in a while, Epsilon gets a story from him about what happened at the crossing.

Yesterday's story involved broken crossing gates, waiting cars deciding whether or not to turn their engine's off, trains going too slowly and similar mayhem. The retelling of this riveting tale involved bringing out toy cars and trains and a comb for the gate. Then telling the story with Epsilon dozens of times, and watching him retell the story incorporating other instances from his memory that involved broken down or stuck cars. Finally, the retelling involved taking out the video camera so that my partner could see the effect that his walk home has had.

Sometimes, things just work.
