Bone Loss and Twinkies

Tonight I had a date with my six-year-old. He chose the activities...breakfast for dinner followed by snuggly movie time on the couch. Wall-E was showing. This was a special "just us" time. He is a funny kid and has a unique take on things. Here is a random snatch of his outward monologue during the movie:
Tinkerbell is the queen of Disney. She's the one who flies over the castle and shoots it with fireworks.
Wall-E's watching a love show..eeww.
Cool, the roach just went inside the Twinkie!
What's bone loss?
Wall-E is using a fire distinguisher to fly in space.  I wish I could do that.
"Stream of consciousness" when referred to its use in writing is defined by (one of my fave websites) as "a special form of interior monologue and is characterized by associative (and at times dissociative) leaps in syntax and punctuation that can make the prose difficult to follow, tracing a character's fragmentary thoughts and sensory feelings."   I think the above sampling is a perfect example.

And by the way, our date night was great.
