One of my co-workers told her daughter, Sophie, about my affinity for the Stick- apprently her five-year-old and I have the same interests. Well, in Sophie's class, they're studying the Stick (or, "Tai Shan" as they call him- where do the tykes come up with this stuff?), and her teacher gave each student a book about his growth and development. Well, Sophie, who has never met me, asked for an extra copy for me, which her mother delivered to me. This is the smartest child ever.
