got the fever for the flavor of a pringle

Sam with a fever on Monday of 103 was more coherent than any other time in his life. you see when Sammy does not have a fever he is like a pringles chip. They taste good, come in different flavors, aren't as bad for you as other chips because they have less extra grease and fat. They are light and airy and come in a can. When he has a fever he is much more like a regular chip. real honest to goodness potato chips aren't formed all into the same shape, they taste even better even if they aren't as good for you. They come in a bag which makes you feel like you somehow got more even if you didn't.
stay with me here
When he isn't sick, he is a pringles chip. he sounds the same and acts the same. his words have been given to him and rarely do you get something you have never heard before. Everything revolves around star wars Jedi and spider man , its really all just one formed chip. Granted being healthy and not having a fever is the preferred option, what fever seems to do to his brain is amazing. His conversation healthy is light and airy and sticks to the surface. He still only holds 2 conversation vollies.
But with fever he talks about everything , he becomes real...3-d. he sings songs without prompting, tells me what he likes and wants. smiles and even held a 9 volley conversation. he talked about the sky and the sun. He asked where clouds came from and then understood the answer. Before anyone jumps on me for the "real" comment please understand I am not saying he isn't a real kid otherwise, he is. It's just the difference between flat Stanley and Muppet's 3-d.
I love him more than anything and I obviously want him healthy but I do wish I could keep those pieces of him closer.
