We rented the first three Star Wars movies this week. After watching the original movie, Spuddy Buddy naturally wanted to play lightsaber. Practically the moment the movie was over, he was wrapping duct tape around an empty gift wrap tube and making big plans to be Spud Skywalker With His Incredible Lightsaber.
Shieldmaiden, ever game for any activity that involves anything remotely sword-like, naturally jumped right in and made herself one, too. What good is one lightsaber, after all?
When the weapons were complete, Spuddy Buddy went running to show Fa-So-La-La. And in his biggest, chestiest man voice he proudly proclaimed:
"Hey look, sister! I made a life saver!!"

I am always intrigued by the way that boy thinks. In the car today:
"Ya know, Mamadah... your head bones are kinda like an inside helmet."
