A couple of years ago my boys and I spent the morning building a kids project at Lowes. This was our going home conversation (edited for length):
Jason: I want to destroy the funhouse mirror.
Me: What? No! You just built that!
Jason: Well, now I want to destroy it.
Me: Arrgh. Fine. Just show it to dad first.
Jason: (laughs maniacally) I'm going to need some equipment.
