sword and the kids

So I have this sword... it's a decorative thing that I acquired oh so long ago from the decorations in a restaurant that was built with a king arthur theme. Very heavy, very sharp, very pointy and looks cool... maybe I'll take a picture and post it. The thing is, George, once up a time saw it. (It's very well stashed away from kiddie finding it possibilities)

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!

    as I read and read and read about "Selfies"... I quietly say to myself... "um... yeah, tell me again how selfies are a new thing." lol. :)
