Don’t Be A…

I have never really been into the Star Wars trilogies. Oh don’t get me wrong, I have seen them, in the theatres, because my oldest brother was into them. But now that I am older, I don’t watch them and my kids have never watched them. That being said, Oldest and I were talking about the incident Saturday night with Little L going poo in the shower stall, and since it’s May 4th, I said it looked like a miniature Jabba the Hut. She looked at me and said “Who’s that?”

“You know, the ugly bad guy in Star Wars.” She said, “I only know R2D2 and he is a robot.” She knows more then that because her friend likes Star Wars and for Christmas she got him a Darth Vader pillow. I said, “You know Yoda.” She said she didn’t.  I went to my tablet and pulled up a pic of the little green fellow and she said, “Oh he’s the one that is looking for his precious.” “Wrong!” I tell her. She reaches for the tablet and I say the worst thing to her although in my defence, I was joking. “That’s a totally different movie, don’t be a dumb assssss”….Yes, that is what I said. To my kid that knows nothing of the movies. After realizing how bad it sounded as it escaped from my mouth, I just wanted to eat those words. Make them dissappear. If I could get my foot up there, I would have crammed it in. The poor, hurtful look in her eyes. I tried to say I was sorry. I told her I was kidding around. But it was not working. I felt horrible. But Oldest surprised me. She did storm off to her cave, but the next time I seen her she was o.k. Not mad at all. I am glad she can let stupid crap like that slide right off her. 

She may make a pretty good Jedi yet. 🙂

    Haha oh no. I probably would have said the same, as we hold both the Star Wars and the LOTR films in very high regard around here 😉
