It was my own fault. I have no one to blame but myself. Zane was playing and didn't want to come and eat, so I'm the one who started it.

"Zane, if you don't come and eat your food, your dragon is going to eat it," I said. This is his dragon:


It's the 'big' dragon from the movie How to Train Your Dragon, one of Zane's favorite movies that he has seen seventy-billion times. In the movie the 'big' dragon eats the little dragons who don't bring him food. This particular version of the 'big' dragon comes with three little dragons that you can put in his mouth. The little dragons travel to the belly of the 'big' dragon, and there's a hatch to open so you can retrieve them and do it all over again.

I thought that Zane would become interested in his breakfast if I told him the dragon would eat it, and I was right. Sort of. Zane came to the table and sat down and picked up his fork, and I turned away to get my own plate of eggs. I heard a giggle, and turned around. There was Zane, his fork of eggs inserted into the mouth of the dragon. My son was feeding the dragon his breakfast.

"Ack!" I screeched. "Zane, no!" I moved quickly to the table, and pulled the fork out of 'big' dragon. I explained that the dragon was perfectly capable of eating his own eggs without any help from him. And I emphatically asserted that under NO circumstances were dragons supposed to eat bacon. They're allergic, you see.

I don't think Zane bought it, but at least he stopped. It took me about thirty minutes to clean all the eggs out of the dragon's belly. And I have no one to blame but myself.
