And then I decided that what we really needed evidence of was inside that fort. After all, how many chances do you get to witness first hand an overwhelmingly successful military campaign? Or visit the world's tallest mountain? Or survive a dragon-infested castle tower? Not often, so I needed to seize this opportunity while the invitation was still extended. So I got down on my stomach, prepared to commando-crawl into that small opening, when from behind me I heard the 10-year old, 16-star General (hey! Not your average military... this one is HIGHLY decorated!) exclaim
MOM!! Don't go all the way in there, you'll wreck it! You're too big!
So with a heavy sigh, I contented myself with snapping pictures from the opening. Then it occurred to me that all was not lost. I might now be considered too big to go into that most sacred of all places to a ten year old boy; but I was still considered important enough to show it to and share it with.
That's good enough for me.
