The conversation went like this:
"E, would you like lasagna for dinner?"
"No! I want macaroni and cheese!"
"Have you ever had lasagna?"
"I want macaroni and cheese! Macaroni and cheese!"
Five minutes later...
"So, E, we're out of macaroni noodles. What if we made it with spiral noodles?"
"Yeah! Spiral noodles!"
"Or, hey, we could make macaroni and cheese with long flat noodles. Does that sound good?"
"Yeah! Macaroni and cheese! Noodles!"
"What if we mixed some tomatoes in?"
"And maybe some hamburger?"
The blogosphere has been alive today with serious discussion of the new iPod Nano's revolutionary design, featuring... wait for it ... curves!
I bought my son a DoodlePro a year ago to keep the boy occupied in church so he wouldn't crawl under the pews. Looking back, I'm amazed at the forward-thinking design, as the curvature of this product is not just a design decision - a sort of packaging meant to keep the innards from spilling out all over the place - but is also a feature. Amazing. I wonder if the iPod people were inspired by the DoodlePro.
