A point there comes during every Youngling's training when an important realization he or she comes to. Today, for the entire class this point came. An important truth they all realized.
"Hey, Master Yoda, I'm taller than you now!"
I hate it when this point comes. "Yes, yes. Getting so big you are. Proud you must be. Get on with your lesson now we must..."
"Hey, I'm taller than you, too, Master Yoda!"
"Ok, good for you that is. Much to accomplish before recess we have..."
"Master Yoda! Um, can I stand back-to-back with you? I wanna see how much taller than you I am!"
"No, time for that we have not..."
"Master Yoda, are you so short 'cause you're so old? 'Cause my grandma is really old and she said she shrunk a lot of inches. And she did, 'cause she's really really short. But not as short as you, though, Master Yoda."
"A nice story that was. This height, all of my people are. Now, get back let us to..."
"Did you smoke a lot? 'Cause I heard that will, uh, stub your growth."
"Smoke I do not. The normal height for my species I am. Time to concentrate it is..."
"Is it because you're an alcaholic? 'Cause lots of beer will make you short too.
"An alcoholic I am not! Put such an idea in your head who did?"
"Master Yoda! Master Yoda! Um, did you work in the circus before you became a Jedi? 'Cause my Dad took me to the circus this one time, and, um, there was this sideshow and like all these little people and there was a lady with a beard too, and a real fat lady, and anyways they had a bunch of really short people like you. So I was wondering if you were in the circus before."
"No. Worked for the circus I did not."
"How come? Didn't you like the circus, Master Yoda?"
"Never worked for the circus I have!"
"Did they make you clean up after the elephants?"
"Listen! Never worked for the circus I have! Now, back to the lesson..."
"Master Yoda, are you the shortest person who ever lived?"
"Ok, enough that is. Want me to ground you, do you? Ready for more time-outs are you?"
Quiet for a little while that made them. A vacation I need.
Voted overwhelmingly for updating my "Greatest Hits" post you have. (Like to thank everyone who participated I would) So update it I will. A few days from now, present you with another big poll where choose your favorite from the last 100 posts you can.
As for you people who for the third choice voted, see it you cannot but mooning you I am. Right that is. Sticking my naked green tushy in your direction I am. A comedian my Stupid Intern thinks he is since in there he put that question. In a few minutes, be laughing he will not.
