Star Wars - A Drama

Mommy comes into the kitchen and says to Daddy: “We have a problem“

Daddy: „what?“

Mommy: “Look!“ as she holds out her hand to reveal a decapitated Princess Leia action figure minus a foot, a hand and a head that is torn at the jaw. “Holly must have been gotten her.“

Daddy: “Hmph, Why did she have to pick Stella’s favorite character?”

Mommy: “yeah, why not the droid that always has to stay in the box. Guess we need to get a new one“

Daddy: “Do you know when this was made?“

Mommy: “No“

Daddy: “1983, She’s a Return of the Jedi action figure. You can’t get them any more.“

Stella: running into the room “Leia owa, Leia owa, Leia owa, Leia owa,Leia owa,Leia owa“ crying profusely.

Daddy to Mommy: “Guess we can’t just trash her huh?“

Mommy to Stella: “Daddy’s going out and on his way he’ll take princes Leah to the Doctor.

Stella: crying profusely “Leia owa, Leia owa, Leia owa, Leia owa,Leia owa,Leia owa.“

Mommy to Daddy: “You’ll figure something out. May the force be with you.“

Daddy to Stella: “Daddy’s taking Princess Leia to the doctor I’ll be back in a while“

Stella: sniffle sniffle, “yeah, Leia owa, Leia owa, Leia owa, Leia owa, Leia owa, Leia owa.“

Meanwhile as daddy is away Stella wakes up from her nap. The first thing she asks mommy: “Daddy, doctor, Leia, heil [better]“

Mommy reassures Stella that Daddy is at the doctor with Leia.

On his way home Daddy stops at home depot for some superglue. In minus 4 degree weather daddy lifts open the back hatch of the car and lays Leia out for surgery. After a couple of difficult few moments; the jaw is reset, head back on, hand reattached…DAMN the foot's completely gone. She’ll live but be forever deformed.

Back at home Daddy gives Leia back to Stella.

Daddy to Stella: “Leia is sick, she just had an operation“

Stella takes Leah with a big smile and immediately notices the missing foot. Pointing to it “ohhhhh, Leia owa“

Stella: Laying Leia down and covering her : “Leia hia [sleeping], Leia hia

p.s. if anyone out there has an old Princess Leia action figure in a dusty box that you don’t plan on selling on ebay, there’s a small child in Germany who could use a replacement.
