One day, he was furiously running from couch to doorway with loads of pillow and blankets. He stacked them with great fervor and precision. This is especially notable because Spork usually begs for help and feigns incompetence with most projects, but he was boldly and decisively working at great speed. When asked what he was doing, he said, "I buildin' dis so nuffin' can get through here!" "Like a dam?" I asked. "Yeah! It a dam." It was indeed, a well-built dam.
We recently got out the nativity set, and while Tater and the Nugget made the types of comments you would expect: "Ooo, I remember this! There's a baby in here!" "I think there's a donkey and a lantern that lights up." Spork had a different focus: "Oh, I love dis. I chop wood, put it in a pile." He was remembering background accessories - a woodpile with a tiny hole for a mouse, an ax and stump, presumably for chopping firewood. He immediately hunted for the ax and went to work chopping the wood with exaggerated flair. This kid keeps me laughing!
