Fighting the Forces of Evil


This morning over breakfast:

  • Henry: Last night while you were all sleeping, I played Animal Trivia with Darth Vader.
  • Me: Really?
  • Henry: Yes. Darth's question was, "True or False: Monkeys really do have tails." Darth said "False!" I said, "Wrong! It's true!"
  • Me: That silly Darth Vader.
  • Henry: Yeah, because he lives in space, he doesn't know about monkeys. . . Then, I played Zurg. His question was , "True or False: Dogs really do live." "False!" said Zurg. "No, true!" I said. "False!" I showed him the card. "Darn!" Zurg said, and banged his hand on the game. . . . I won the game, Mom!

That's my boy. Battling bad guys and striking down evil, one trivia question at a time!

Michal,
Your boys are so funny. Quite the imaginations!
I enjoyed reading about your sister and her little family. Sounds like your family is all doing well!
