A Pocket Full of Murder

Impersonations 'R' Us

The other day I was putting my (just) 2-year-old son into his car seat, and all of a sudden he exclaimed, "I'm Doctor Who!"

This struck me as odd, seeing as he's only glimpsed a few minutes of Who in his entire life, and I wouldn't have thought it would connect that strongly with a toddler. Still, my son had previously declared himself to be Spider-Man, a little birdie (tweet tweet), and the bull from Shaun the Sheep, so I wasn't all that surprised...

...until he screwed up his face and said in an outraged British accent, "What? WHAT?!"

I nearly fell out of the van.
