[david]David, who turned 5 the day we moved in January, re-discovered my light saber keychain, that came as a promo with Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. He has been trying, unsuccessfully, to get me to give it to him for a couple of weeks. The other day he found an angle that he was sure would work.
â€œDad, when youâ€™re saved, all you need is Jesus, right?â€ I looked at his face, and noticed that he had an odd-but-very-cute, somewhat droll smile that Iâ€™ve seen before, usually when he thinks heâ€™s figured out a way to get more allowance money.
As heâ€™d been pestering me for several days about the keychain, and I was in its general vicinity, it only took me a few seconds to see where he was going with this. â€œSo,â€ I said, â€œyou are saying that I only need Jesus, and I donâ€™t need the light saber, so I should give it to you!â€ His smile broadened, as he was obviously pleased that I saw things his way. â€œUnfortunately, even though I donâ€™t need the light saber, I still want the light saber, so you canâ€™t have it.â€ (Plus he has broken it twice.)
Maybe Iâ€™ll get him one for Christmas. Of course, heâ€™s already asking for Christmas gifts early (wanting me to order them online immediately), specifically two Lego Spider-Man sets.
