critical thinking, redux

Mary is really getting old enough to understand plots now. She still loves “Dr. Who.” Today, we discussed the conventions of the show. She totally understands genre!

Mary: What’s that?
Me: What do you think it is?
Mary: An alien.
Me: That’s right. I think so, too.
Mary: A green alien.
Me: A nice alien, or a mean one?
Mary: A bad one.
Me: What do you think is going to happen?
Mary: The Doctor is going to send the alien away.
Me: I bet you’re right.
Mary: And then he’ll hug Rose.

ha ha ha. I love that kid.
