I have been extraordinarily mean and frustrating to our son; requiring him to make up his own Star Wars stories, as opposed to him absorbing the canon (yet).
I may have to re-think this, as a number of his recent tales - which are monumentally thrilling and original - end with...
"...and then Luke and Princess Leia get married."
Luke and Leia.
"I don't want to impose my authorship upon your stories,"
I say kindly.
"But no. Luke and Leia do not get married. Not gonna happen. How about...Leia and Han? Or even...Leia and Jabba the Hutt? Could be funny."
he says with finality.
"Princess Leia and Luke get married."
I sigh, and wonder where he learned to be frustrating. Probably from his mother.

Just to be safe, always carry a flashlight at night, and when traveling, "always arrange to hire a limousine or rent a mule rather than take a bus to your destination." Also, it's much safer to get a companion fare for big slides.
