Yesterday day my son Orlando made me feel so proud when he gave me the ultimate compliment for a dad who loves Star Wars.
He described me as half-Yoda half-Han Solo!
He then gives a cheeky smile and adds…”half as good looking as Han Solo and half as old as Yoda” (which would make me around 450 years old!)
I puffed up with pride and then the pride was punctured!
When I picked my son up from school I told him how he had inspired a POST and how he too was a combination of Han Solo and Yoda:
As good looking as Yoda – as wise as Han Solo!
“Hey, Han Solos is wise!” – my son strongly protests ignoring the Yoda comment to defend his hero Han.
“Han is smart and knows how to save Luke when he is freezing. He teaches Luke stuff. He’s a good fighter!”
When I start laughing at his earnestness of his defence – my son cooly replies “Laugh it up Fuzzball!”
I love my son’s knowledge and passion of Star Wars and his skill at arguing his case.
Star Wars is a great bond between us – I use it to teach him and he teaches me stuff too!
He also loves there is a character with a name like his – (Or) Lando Calrissian.
I gotta get this T-shirt! My son will probably want one too – but we better not both wear them at the same time. That would be too much!
Here’s a link for how to get the T-shirt.
I’m a business writing consultant, writer and editor so this next T-shirt also really combined my work with my love of Star Wars.
Go must I now. Back to more serious writing world go I.
