Yesterday I took part in a community event for kids that showcased different hobbies. There were two of us who brought in some of our collectibles. (Both of us women. Action figures: not just for teenage nerds and 40-year-old virgins any more!) She had mainly X-Men and Lord of the Rings figures; I had a lot of Star Wars stuff, plus some Doctor Who and Terminator.
Getting coffee in the morning, I mentioned the upcoming event to a super-barista friend, and she said I really ought to be bringing my husband. I practically smacked my forehead. If I'd planned ahead, I could have brought him in his Clone Trooper uniform. A living action figure!
