“Connor, look at you, inside on a day like this! Why don’t you go out and play football with the other boys?”

He glanced up with a slightly pained look.

“Football isn’t really my thing, Gran.”

Ellen Temple sighed in despair.

No, his ‘thing’ mostly seemed to involve sitting in his room reading books about science and dinosaurs, and playing on that computer thingy.

It wasn’t healthy for a boy his age.

Besides, books and games were all well and good, but what about his future? What sort of job was he ever going to get with dinosaurs and computers?

Yeah. What sort of job could he have with those obsessions ;)

Nice drabble!

thanks. It's a very specialised job field for that skill set...

One almost hopes his gran lived to see the anomalies go public and him saving the world. Nice fic!

Ha, little did his Gran know!

I can so see wee Connor doing this.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 21st, 2012 09:17 am (UTC) (Link)
Hee, yes, I'm pretty sure young Connor was not a football person in the slightest. Sitting in his room reading and doing computer stuff, however...

Nicely done and little does his gran know ;)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 21st, 2012 09:17 am (UTC) (Link)
thanks. Yes, his Gran would no doubt be surpised to learn where those skills finally got him!
