Talking like Optimus Prime to get your 6 year old son to do something #BritishDadStuff
You know you're a Great British Dad...
...when you give yourself a hoarse throat from giving your 6 year old son orders in the voice of Optimus Prime because it's the only way you can get stuff through to him.
"Before time began, there was The Cube.
We know not where it comes from. Only that it holds the power to create worlds and fill them with life.
That was how our race was born.
For a time, we lived in harmony. But like all great power, some wanted it for good, and some for evil.
And so began the war.
A war that ravaged our planet until it was consumed by death. And the cube was lost to the far reaches of space. We scattered across the galaxy, hoping to find it, and rebuild our home, searching every star, every world. And just when all hope seemed lost - message of a new discovery drew us to an unknown planet called... Earth.
But we were already too late.
Can you pick up your Lego now, it's the fourth time I asked. Please."
That last bit was me, but I'm hoping he doesn't notice the join.
I'm putting these quotes here, but I'll be using them to jazz up my little call-to-action on these posts where I leave the link if you want to sign up to this blog by email...
Autobots, roll out!
At the end of this day - one shall stand. One shall fall.
Fate has yielded its reward. A new world to call "home".
We live among its people now, watching over them, waiting, protecting.
I have witnessed their capacity for courage. And though we are worlds apart. Like us, there's more to them than meets the eye.
For in our quest to protect the humans, a deeper revelation dawns. Our worlds have met before...
