Amirah (while looking around for a little present for Avi's birthday):
All of these things are so... modern! Modern is boring. Does Savannah have an old-fashioned toy store? It's easier for Eli. He's more of a modern boy. He likes trains.
[Mama agrees, except I'm not sure that trains are "modern." I just wanted a simple medium-sized, all-metal, no-batteries, Tonka truck, but alas, such a thing was not to be found... EVERY SINGLE TOY HAD BATTERIES! BLEAH!]
Eli: I'm not an ordinary boy. I like to stay up late and get up late.
