Conversations with Island Boy

Watching films of IB in Haiti speaking Kreyol:

Island Boy:  “I couldn’t speak English.”

*****************************

Papa is reading the paper.  He doesn’t realize that he is sitting on IB’s giant, stuffed Buzz Lightyear.  He is slow to realize that IB is tugging on the doll.  A ‘life imitates art’ moment followed.

Island Boy:  “You ripped him.

Buzz’s left arm hangs limply at his side.

Papa:  “YOU ripped him.”

Island Boy:  “You ripped him.  Just like in the movie.”
