So the story goes a little something like this. . . Byron was running around in his red towel after a bath. I was getting Taryn dressed in her pajamas. I asked Byron to go and get his pajamas on and he told me, "I am not Byron. I am Star Wars. Get out your lightsaber and fight with me." So we air fought with our pretend lightsabers. Suddenly it occurred to me that I could use this to my advantage. I put my air lightsaber away and told Byron, "I'm sorry, but I can only fight you Byron if you have your pajamas, or at least your underwear on."
He said, "I am not Byron!"
"Who are you then?"
"I am the red guy."
It later occurred to me that he might have meant Darth Maul, but he has only seen episodes IV, V and VI. So I said, "what red guy?"
"The Bad Guy!"
"You mean Darth Vader?"
"Yeah, Darth Vader. No, not Darth vader. . . Um, I'm Ele Vader!"
I about fell over I was laughing so hard. I made him go tell his dad who he was and he came back with his lightsaber (pictured above). Steve joined me in my laughter. Byron is so funny. He wanted to make sure he was the right character, so he said, "is Ele Vader the one who flies? I want to go up and down."
I assured him that yes indeed elevators go up and down, and we just laughed harder. He is still being true to the character of Ele Vader, especially after every bath! That was about two weeks ago. We were sure that he would catch his mistake, especially since we still laugh every time he tells us he is Ele Vader! I think at this point we will be sad to see Ele Vader go when he gets it right! Hope you laugh, or at least smile as hard as we did!
