There are a couple of funny stories that I wrote down on Facebook, which I neglected to record here, so I will put them here as well. The first is from two weeks ago when Alexander couldn't live without his emergency paperclip supply. He took a paperclip to co-op. He took a paperclip to church. He had to have paperclips on him at all times!
Alexander: See this paperclip? I can use it to unlock the bathroom door! So if it ever gets locked with nobody inside, I can be the one to let people in!
Me: Well, hopefully that won't happen *too* often.
Me: *knock, knock* Hey, who's in the bathroom?
Me: Nobody. Okay.
Alexander, brandishing paperclip: I can fix that.
Me: Thanks, buddy. Hey, are *all* the bathroom doors locked?
Alexander: *looks sheepish*
Me: Okay, how about we unlock all the bathroom doors and use the paperclip only in case of actual emergencies. We don't need to fabricate emergencies, okay?
Alexander: *walking around wearing a necklace of paperclips*
Me: Huh. Nice necklace.
Alexander, patting his necklace: For emergencies.
