Vern, an avid amateur astronomer*, pointed out Antares to the Bear tonight, as he put him to bed. (Yes, the kids got to bed pretty late tonight.) Their conversation went like this:
Vern: "That's Antares, Bear. It's a star, a special kind of star called a red supergiant."
The Bear (very excitedly, in his lilting, earnest, overly-precise 3-year-old's voice):
"I want to get one of those! I really need one of those!"
Hey Birrd . . . see any family resemblance?
*Astronomer . . . not astrologer. ;o)
