Hobby Lobby: Hank's Turn

Long-time readers of my blog may remember about our school's Lobby Hobby. New readers may want a quick primer.

Last week was Hank's turn to showcase a prized possession. He chose his toy cars and their accompaniments like a Hot wheels car village and tractor trailer car carriers. It was quite the display.


He took his junior kindergarten companions to the display last Thursday and gamely told me that they boys liked his display but the girls were generally more interested in the My Little Pony display directly above his. He also relayed that his friend Curly who, being a good friend, did look at Hank's display before being lured away by all the pink and glitter directly above, challenged his decision to include a coloring book, for Pete's sake, in s display about cars. Hank laughed while telling the tale and said, "Duh-- because it's NASCAR." Apparently Curly lives a NASCAR-free life. I sort of thought Hank did too, but I guess that little punk knows more than I give him credit for.

So what is it anyhow? Are all little boys just born with "car genes"? And who invented the wheel, anyhow? I always assumed it was a woman...
