Anesthesia Brain

My 5-year-old nephew had to help me solve today's crossword puzzle. The clue was: Houston's ____ Ming. I thought and thought and thought, and the name just wouldn't pop into my brain! I asked Aaron, my nephew, "What's that guy's name - he plays for Houston, the tall Chinese guy?"
Aaron looked at me and said, "Oh yeah, I have his game." Thought for a second and said, "His name is Yao! Did I help you solve your puzzle? Let me see!"

I'm blaming this on the anesthesia that is loitering in my system. But it very well be because my nephew is smarter than me.
