One Ironman short of completion

Jack (nearing 6) in the car, staring out the window: "What does "rich" mean again?  Oh, I know..."rich" is when you have more of something that you need.  Like how I used to be rich with toys. We had so many toys."

Me: "How do you feel about not having so many toys?"

"It's all right.  Not awesome."

"So what would make it awesome?"

"Just a tiny bit more toys.  Like...one toy.  But I'm going to wait until my birthday and I need to spell it for you."

And then handed me the back of an empty All State bill envelope, written in orange sharpie: "Uirnman."

Apparently, my son is one Ironman toy away from complete life happiness.

Good to know.
