Captain Bairdo!

Meet Captain Bairdo.
I met him when he barged into my office, interrupting my work with a very formal, " 'Scuse me, ma'am."
"Yes sir?"
"No, my name is Captain Bairdo."
"Oh?" I replied, suprised. "And just who is Captain Bairdo?"
With a very serious face, he begins to explain: "I'm very tough. Very muscle-y. I can turn my eyes on so I can see what's in the dark. And I make everything frozen with my sword. And when I scream it makes my protect sheild. Then I can fight fast and not lose my sheild.
And I can blow fire."
He then turns away, suddenly spinning back to face me with sword drawn, teeth bared and sheild arm ready, exclaiming: "Captain Bairdo is tougher than anyone!"

"I see that!" I say, quite in awe of the little man.

Captain Bairdo marches off in short order, only to return a moment later to clarify one point: "I'm Captain Bairdo only when I put on this hat and my suit with my sword and my sheild. Because I don't have a mask."

After a formal salute this heroic figure of a man swiftly goes back to his room, because - apparently - his puppies need saving.

I have only one thing to say to you and that browned-eyed boy whom you call Muad'dib ... quit your day jobs and start writing books! Your way with words is so enticing! I love to hear your stories. Keep sharing. Love you! Little T.

Ditto to all comments! I especially noticed your quote from Dragonfly in Amber. Great one! I will have to add that one to my "Captivating" additional quotes.

Oh darling Lemur.
Even his play time he takes seriously. We have spent years with our boy picking up the closest stick, rock, sword, light saber, etc. to save the world as he goes. Aren't boys wonderful!
