Transformers & the wife
So, I’m totally geeking all over the place whenever the subject of “Transformers” comes up. But that’s not really the point.
When in Utah, the wife and I went to see Pirates 3 (eh, it was ok. Too long, but Johnny Depp is almost always cool). Transformers trailer played in front of it. Amy turns to me and says in a tiny voice “I didn’t know there were bad Transformers….”. Shock! Surprise! How the hell did you grow up in the 80’s and not know about the Decepticons!?!?
Then, just a few weeks ago, she bought Ethan a Transformers toy. I get home, he comes running out the door with it and says “Daddy, I’m a BAD GUY Transformer!!”. “COOL!” When I get inside Amy says “I accidentally bought him a bad Transformer :(. I looked at the package, really I did. But it doesn’t say anywhere that he’s a bad guy!”. I’m semi-flabbergasted at that statement and say “You got him Starscream, didn’t you?” “How the heck did you know that!?” “I’m a geek, that’s how I knew that”.
In our house, however, Ethan has proclaimed that Starscream is a good guy.
