James and the Green Pen
James got some new Crayola pens recently. We've learned that they are best used when he is confined to his high chair.
James played with one, while Dora played on the television. He was very distracted.
He tried to draw on paper, but kept his eyes on Dora's adventures on the television.
He played with the cap mechanism.
And then all of a sudden, he noticed that his hands were covered in green ink.
He put down the pen, and examined his hands with some concern.
And then it struck him. He was COVERED in ink!
He stopped and paused to let it sink it. He would forever be green.
He thought about life as a green little boy. It might actually be fun.
Perhaps he could play with frogs and blend in. Whatever the case, Simon plonked James in the bath, and within moments of getting water on his hands, he was completely clean. The ink comes off totally and easily. But James sure had fun while it lasted!
