If it pleases the crown…

So a while back, my son was playing with his Duplo blocks and he asks me: “Can I build a house?”

My response: “Do you have the proper permissions from the Planning Department, and will your house meet the appropriate setback requirements? Is your house in a development that meets the guidelines established in the Growth Policies Plan? Will your house contribute to Urban Sprawl?”

I have to wonder what it says about me that those are the first things that pop into my mind when my son wants to build a pretend house from plastic blocks.

If it pleases the crown, may my son have permission to play with his toys?
