A burning sensation

January 27th, 2013 by dad

We were about to start a game of Catan Cities and Knights when I decided to make some tea. Dorje helped carry the flask full of hot water back to the lounge.

He’s been singing like Bianca Castafiore ever since starting to read Tintin, so when he started shrieking again, it seemed like anther famous “Jewel Song” was in the offing.

Unfortunately, he was helping to carry a flask with hot water to the lounge, and the top had come off, pouring scalding water on his arm.

He spent the next while melting all my icepacks. An initial look at his arm didn’t show much damage, but some impressive blisters came up about an hour later.

Deer prancing

Dorje is lucky enough to come from a highly artistic family. We decided to have a drawing competition to see who’s progressed the most. Dorje is all of nine, so it wasn’t really a fair match, but we went ahead anyway. First, Dorje’s entry, entitled “Sea monster behind the hills”.

Next, my contribution, “Deer prancing”.

As I said, Dorje is already nine, so passed my level about eight years ago. Still, I quite like the way my deer turned out. Which do you think was better?
