“Mommyo, why aren’t you a Star Wars fan?”

One of many pieces of Star Wars fan art created by The Five-Year-Old after watching Star Wars for the first time with her parents about three weeks ago. (Drawing: The Five-Year-Old Howell)

The Five-Year-Old, out of the blue: “Mommyo, why aren’t you a Star Wars fan?”

Mommyo, defensively: “I am a fan. Who told you I wasn’t?”

The Five-Year-Old, matter-of-factly: “Daddyo.”

Mommyo, huffily: “Well, I don’t know why he said that. I like Star Wars.”

The Five-Year-Old, accusingly: “And why didn’t you name me R2D2?”

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
