If you build it,
they still won't have a clue what it is

The Talker has rediscovered his Star Wars Trading Card Game. He likes baseball cards and he like the idea of Pokemon card (though he has no idea what to do with them), so The Boss Lady bought a set of these cards a while back.

I'll admit, I have no freakin' clue what to do with these cards, either. But the boy and I like checking out the pictures and he likes reading about the different characters and ships pictured on each card.

The set came with little parts and pieces for models of some Star Wars ships that you(r dad) can assemble if he needs to get a good grouch on. Yep, wanna see dad pissed? Have him help with the card game models!

I just spent almost an hour on this one. Possibly because I am an imbecile, possibly because there are no directions to be found anywhere.

When I finished, The Talker said, "Cool! What is it?" Heck, son, I figured you would know. All I know is it had 14 or a billion pieces and it is about the size of a quarter.

I feel like complaining to higher ups about the micro-models, but evidently The Boss lady has experienced the pain. Seems she has put together a few already.

Maybe she used The Force.

Or maybe she just knows where the @)(#*) instructions are hidden.

I've got to get Xav some of those -- he's so into Star Wars right now it's crazy. I've watched each of the Clone Wars episodes a dozen times (sadly, they aren't very good . . . but they are Star Wars!).
