What were you thinking?

My Dad loves knights, the kind in suits of armor. In fact, he has a cool suit of armor that stands about 5 feet tall. Well to go along with his knight collection he has started to collect swords and he ended up having alot of them. I do not understand the fascination with knives, swords and such. In fact everytime we go to the Oaks mall, Adam and the boys love to go to the knife store. Whatever! I have been going to that mall for years and I never even knew it was there. Boys and their weapons?!? Anyways, when we went up for Thanksgiving my Dad tells the boys that he would love to have them pick out one of his swords that they could have but he needed to get our permission first. So me being the silly and non-thinking Mom that I am, I said "Sure, you can have one of PaTa's swords." I was thinking that it will be special to them because it is from their Grandpa but it will not be just sitting in their room so that they can "play" with it just anytime. In fact, I will be in charge of it. All I need is sword fights going on with "real" swords. I believe that someone would end up missing a limb.

Then not only did my Dad give the boys each a sword but he ended up giving Adam a sword also. What? I am the only girl in our house and now he has armed all the males in the house with sharp swords? I think that I am the one who needs a weapon. Thanks Dad!

I'm glad we live FAR away :). My boys would come over to play and probably chop someone's arm off with the real sword. They do enough damage with fake swords and can make a sword with anything - mop handles, tennis rackets, broom sticks, hockey sticks, yardsticks etc.

Your post made me miss the Oaks Mall! (of course I wouldn't go to the sword shop but I heard they have a Nordstrom now?!!!) - Suzanne Bergen

Pam, be careful. I heard there are some scary guys with weapons in your neighborhood. I can help you out if you need someone to take them out. Call anytime.

I was there when they were picking out those swords and it was apparent that Adam really wanted one too, so I'm glad Grandpa gave him one!

Don't tell Jeff. He will be so jealous. He wants a suit of armor as well...
