One must wonder whether the odd character
is the 5 year old kid ... or his parents? Certainly, if left unchecked, a child that age could do a lot of odd things. I imagine if my parents looked the other way, I could have spent a whole year not bathing
or changing my clothes, eating nothing but peanut butter jelly sandwiches
I am all for giving a child every opportunity to use his/her imagination and explore his/her identity. If Disney's Dream Kid had been my son, though, I probably would have sat him down after a few weeks of this and tried to explain how I am not Zeus and that he should probably not be standing in the middle of the road, trying to stop cars with his bare hands.
All in all, though, I envy that kid. He's going to have a healthy inner child when he grows up. I imagine that he'll have to find employment someplace that fits his 'habits', such as an amusement park or San Francisco.
