The Tauntaun Loophole

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

Jude's preschool does show-and-tell every Friday.  That said, he still likes to bring an action figure in the car with him every morning on the way to school.  The deal is that if it is not Friday, he has to leave the toy in the car until we pick him up.  Then he places them in the cupholder of his car seat until his return.

So yesterday, Jude's Aunt Steffie stopped by to drop off a present: the Star Wars Hoth Battle action figure set.  It included Luke, Han, a Tauntaun they could ride, and six other figures.  Naturally, this was a hit.  This morning, of course, Jude wanted to bring these action figure in the car.  He had his "Pack-Pack" packed up will all of them and was ready to walk out the door.

"You can't bring all of your action figure to the car with us," Chris said.  "You can pick one guy."

"No!" said Jude, looking ready to throw a tantrum, "I want to take my new guys."

"I'll make you a deal," bargained Chris, "If you don't throw a tantrum, you can bring two guys."

"Okay."  Jude opened the "Pack-Pack" and began looking for his selections.

On the way out the door I noticed that Jude did not have two figures; he had three. Two guys and the Tauntaun.  "Chris," I said, "Jude is over his two-guy limit.  He has a guy and another guy riding a Tauntaun."

"Well, let him go," he said. "I guess he found a couple of loopholes.  The Tauntaun is technically not a Star Wars 'guy'; he's a Star Wars 'creature'. And the one guy is riding him."
