rules, regulations and rivers

yesterday i had to discuss the lausd internet acceptable use policy with paul. that was kind of weird. then i had to talk to him about the school handbook. that was also kind of weird. while this was all going on, he was pretending to be at [a very different type of] school. at the end he had a request.

paul: you have to say, "now it's time to practice crossing the river."
me: now it's time to practice crossing the river.

and he did -- he hopped over his sleeping bag on the floor and landed on a mattress.

me: okay, now i want you to practice crossing the river this way.
me: and give me a hug.
paul: [crossing river and giving me a hug] i did really good.
me: yes, you did.
