What's in a Name?

When I started calling Mr.2young "Mr.2young" it was both because I felt he was too young for me and because, well, let's face it, I didn't think he'd last very long. (Track records and all that, eh?)

However I no longer think he's too young for me (there are other issues, but that's not really one of them anymore.) I also know that he hates it when I joke about his extreme youth and my cougarish ways.

So, well, since he's going to be sticking around for awhile I kind of feel like he needs to be christened with a new moniker and I finally feel like I've got one.

Jedi. Yes, let's call him Jedi.

Why? Well, let's just say that he's an uber-geek.

Let's also say that when I was looking for a Halloween costume and someone suggested I be Princess Leia (because I've got very long hair that can easily be made into ear-buns!) I knew who to go to for the rest of my costume.

The conversation went something like this:

Me: I bet you have a light saber, don't you?

Jedi: What would make you think that?!

Me: You do, don't you?

Jedi: I don't know what you're talking about!

Me: How many do you own?

Jedi: Three.

Ha ha! Jedi it is!

(For ease of browsing through the archives I'll lable the previous posts with "Jedi" as well.)

Can I just say how much fun it is to read these entries now that you're allowing yourself to be in extreme-like (won't use the L word) with Jedi?

It's freakin' adorable. I love it. :)

Plus, a Princess Leia costume is totally rock'n. I'm glad he is so nice to you.

i'm glad that age isn't an issue with you anymore. he does sound like a keeper. jedi sounds like a good nickname... besides being "geeky", it also seems to conjure up an image of a young one, you know, young jedi haha!
