Tactics

"Who are you from Star Wars?" The Mayor asked.
Every day, on the drive to drop K off at the commuter train, The Mayor organizes us into Star Wars characters for imaginary play.

K decided to be Yoda and I went for Han Solo.

"I'm Luke Skywalker!" The Rooster announced.

"But...," The Mayor started to protest.

It was obvious from his whining tone that HE wanted to be Luke Skywalker.

He quickly pulled himself together, knowing that his sister would never give up the title if she knew he wanted it.

He employed a more clever tactic.
"Luke Skywalker? Are you sure?" he asked.

She held her claim.

"Roo, let me ask you this... do you like using your same two hands every day?"
K and I were on to him.

Our family is also part of "The Force", my seven year old son has daily battles against Stormtroopers, Darth and the Emperor. May the Force be with you Jedi Master, it seems that your young apprentice will soon overtake you with his wit and intellect.

That is hugely funny. I love both your kids and the way you tell their story.

The Force is strong in our household as well.

Little A still doesn't get, "This is not the mommy you're looking for" when I close the shower curtain on her inquiring eyes.

Patois said...

Dude is too, too smart. And quite well versed in the whole Star Wars saga.

Well played, Mayor. Well played.
