My Daughter, Star Wars Geek

I’m such a proud father. Noah is really learning her Star Wars lore. Last night Saint Nick came and one of the things he left in Noah and Jack’s stockings was a small Star Wars Lego set for each of them. The kids were admiring their Legos and cursing the fact that they had to go to school instead of playing with their new Legos when Noah made a comment about how she wished banthas weren’t so gross. Jack asked, “What’s a bantha?” Noah’s reply:

“You know, sand people’s pets. They ride them. Usually in single file to hide their numbers.”

That last bit is of course what Ben Kenobi told Luke Skywalker in Episode IV when they find the destroyed sandcrawler. I ask you, how many eight year old girls know that?
