One for George Lucas

Below is a conversation I had with Grant not too long ago...

Me = So, what do you and your new friends do at recess?
Grant = Me and Nick and Owen play Star Wars!
This is news to me! We are not a Star Wars family. Well, Kerry is into it. I just never cared for it.
Me = You do? How do you play Star Wars if you don't know what it is?
Grant = They tell me what to do, and I do it.
That sounds scary.
Me = Well, that sure is nice of them to help you play.
Grant = And guess what,Momma! I am the bestest and the strongest character, too!
Me = You are? Which character are you?
And here's the best part where he proudly boasted... Wait for it....... Wait for it........ Wait for it........ It's worth it.........
Grant = I'm Maurice!!!!

And this is where I laughed my buns off! Although I do not know much about Star Wars, I feel pretty confident when I say there is NOT a character named Maurice. But I think it's safe to assume that if there WAS a "Maurice", he would be the "bestest" and the "strongest"!

That is too funny. I am ready for Drew to start talking, I think. Mainly I just want to know what he is thinking. Hope that school is still going well.

HA HA!!! I think this Star Wars game must have started at Southminster, b/c Gabby always talked about how the boys loved playing it. Maurice, the character you never knew was there being the strongest and best. How do you think Luke defeated his father?....Maurice was with him.
