Bundles of tens

This is based on my best approximation of a conversation with Little Elvis on the way home from school yesterday.

Some random pop song by a boy is on the radio. He is not a fan of any songs by a girl, or a boy who sounds like a girl. I know he doesn't believe me about some Prince and Michael Jackson songs. But it works both ways, he's also convinced that Annie Lenox is a boy.

Anyway, random song is playing.

Little Elvis: This song without the words will be the theme song for my movie, "Bundles of Tens." It's got a math term, but it's not about math. It's just about bundles. It's a mix between "Lord of the Rings" and "Viking."

Me: Have you seen "Lord of the Rings"?

Little Elvis: No.

Me: How do you know it's a mixture?

Little Elvis: Because it's action.

Me: Ah. Yes.

Little Elvis: It will have a Trojan hundred.

Me: A huh?

Little Elvis: A Trojan hundred. It's like the Trojan horse, but with a 100. All the bundles will hide inside the Trojan hundred. Like they did in the 1500s.

Me: That happened in the 1500s? I thought it was way before that.

Little Elvis: I don't know. It was a long time ago. The movie will be rated PG-13 for mild language and violence.

Me (worried about what he's heard me say lately): What is the language?

Little Elvis: 'Who are you calling horse head?'

Me: What?

Little Elvis: They will call the Trojan Hundred a horse head, and it will say, "Who are you calling horse head?" Get it?

Me: Yes. You need to write this down when we get home so we can tell Daddy about this movie.

He wrote down about two sentences, but was so excited about all of the ideas and just everything in general that he got sidetracked. But I had to write this down. I love the horse head, and the Trojan hundred idea. His mind is so funny.

We have lots of these conversations. He's got 15 movies on his docket right now, and as of today, has relegated "Bundles of Tens" to the end. I'm sad about that.
