Psy what?

Were sitting in the car. Weve been sitting in the car for four hours, and the toddler is getting quite bored of this situation.

We are playing a version of I spy that fits an almost-two-year-old understanding of how things work, where one person names things and then the other people shout when they see that thing.

An ominous fanfare fills the car.

Well, no, it doesnt, but it would have been cool if it did.

I should carry around an ominious fanfare band for precisely this kind of situation.
