[Nope, not about Kai this time]
The short people of the household are apparently going on a Journey to the Centre of the Earth. We saw the 3D movie a little while back, and Miss Tizz has been (sporadically) reading the Jules Verne novel, while the X-man has been studying the photobook of the movie (his reading skills aren't quite up to the novel yet!).
So today they each packed a bag for the journey. They decided they needed a spellbook (to slow down the dinosaur), a stuffed toy (to cuddle when things got scary), wool and a crochet hook (they've resumed interest in the craft), and the X-man had something extra. A duster. Why? In case the centre of the earth is dusty.
Duh! Why didn't I think of that?
