Happy Star Wars Day! *now with bonus story*  

So guess what I found this morning when I was cleaning?

It isn't a surprise. I bought this book for the kids a couple of Christmases ago. But as I looked at it, I noticed it was bookmarked in several places.

Which was intriguing.

They bookmarked essential gear that they'd need.

Where are they going? I think to myself.

And why will they need to write things in code When they get there?

At least I know how they're going. In Go-Cart style, baby.

And evidently they're going to make some origami hats...

and water weaponry.

It's all starting to fall into place.

This page is to chart out they're route. *nods*

But here's where they lost me. Coin tricks?

And then suddenly it becomes abundantly clear. My sweet boys are going to become poker-playing coin trick doing card sharks that Go-cart across the United States water-bombing people in code.

Where did I go wrong?

*gigglesnort* Oh dear. Gotta give them props for their creativity, I suppose. :D

Heh. If you say so!

At least they have a PLAN! Many boys wait until after college to know what they want to do with their lives. Yours have a leg up! *nods fervently*

So they're advanced gambling, magic show doing, juvenile delinquent spies?

You always see the glass half full, Jessica. :D

I meant to buy this book for James. But I kept forgetting. :(

I think your boys are hilarious.

*giggles* At least they have a creative plan!

Obviously, they're planning on becoming famous riverboat gamblers on the Mighty Mississip, where they will use codes to table-talk, and once they're found out, they'll deploy the horrible water-bomb and escape on the go-kart...

Thanks for filling me in on their plan.

That makes sense, now.

I was once a little boy, so I know how the psyche works.

You had me cracking up during the entire thing. Perhaps the influence of your husband was just too strong?

You didn't 'go wrong' at all! Sounds like a great plan to me.

Happy belated Star Wars day! I had rehearsal almost all day yesterday so I sort of missed it. :)

That book looks fantastic! I can't quite tell from the print who the author(s) are - could you write it out for me? I think my oldest would love that book.

Your boys are adorable. :)

It's The Dangerous Book for Boys by Gonn Iggulden.

And thank you!

Thank you! I'm due for another bookstore run so I'll add that to my list. :)

Haha. I think their imaginations are amazing, whether their plans are as you say or not. :) Oh, little boys...

Goodness! Shows they have creative, working minds. *nods* I think they're precious! :D

So nice of you to provide them an illustrated manual for their boy adventures. *snorts* How fun to see what caught their fancy! Such an excellent gift. I'm a bit afraid to buy for my son... he might seriously do that stuff. Then again, the long days of summer lie (lay?) ahead. Hmm.
