“This is cool!” he mumbled while he was breaking down that broken water pistol. I got a glimpse of him, and saw he holding and gazing at the tiny pump part. Have you ever felt “cool” about tiny part of like toys or a ball-point pen? He always does.
My father is an electric engineer, actually. So, it’s obvious that Tatsu has taken over his grand-pa gene. The other day, my father was talking to Tatsu about Morse code that my father used to do for his fun about 40 years ago. I remember his tool to send the message with dot and dash like this.
Tatsu was very interested in it, and wanted his grandpa to give him that tool.
We were amazed and said, “What are you gonna do with that? You’re in the net society! You can send not only beep sound but texts, images, music, videos almost everything!” ” But it looks COOL!” he said. Serious? So, now he has that tool (not connected) and the books on Morse code.
These geeks are not interested in the point of convenience at all. They rather prefer complex way. My father seemed very satisfied and happy about his grand-son’s phase. I don’t have any brother, so Tatsu is the first and only person who can have empathy each other to things full of bolts and nuts.
