He asked me about it... sheesh, he must have been like 3 (he's now 5) and I happily told him it was Mine, and when he asked why I owned a sword, I - without missing a step - told him that I used to be a knight and lived in a castle... I needed the sword to uphold my duty - that being to protect the man that owned the castle.
We told a few bedtime stories about being knightly ...
I had thought this kinda faded into his memories.
Kids don't forget anything... nothing.
He has convinced his whole senior kindergarten class that I was a knight. Fought dragons, lived in a castle... the whole deal. There is no way in hell I am gonna mess with that... :D
Sir Corto, Keeper of the Peace and Defender of the Realm. hahaha... boy I love those kids... I think I am fine with the idea that I live in a castle... it's just less drafty than the old one... and I serve my master (Z) well and defend our castle and all who live there... come on, come to my castle and threaten my boiz... just watch out for the sword. :D
oh, and on a sad note: I just found out that the new Garbage album will not be released until late summer... rats. I was still thinking it was to come out this month!
