The day before I had forgotten when my son bought a small Indiana Jones Lego set.
A come on, I suppose.
Plus a deliberate way to promote “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” which opens this Thursday…just in case you haven’t noticed any of the promotional efforts, which include, I noticed, French fry boxes at Burger King.
I thought we could buy the birthday boys the on sale Lego sets.
They could be the first in their neighborhoods to have them.
When I picked up one in the right price range, my son pointed out that it was the last one and he wanted it.
“But you told me you already have a present,” the young one with the good memory said.
I told him I was buying it for him anyway and that he would have to pick out other Indiana Jones Legos for his friends.
“But Alain doesn’t like Legos,” he replied, suggesting a gift card instead.
It ended up that only one of the three got the Indiana Jones merchandise I walked in to buy; the other two got gift cards.
His father Ray told me so at his birthday party. Notice that I am not the only one who takes pictures.
My son has already decided he wants to be Indiana Jones for Halloween, complete with whip, which I would guess will be purchased at Disney World right outside the Indiana Jones auditorium the next time we go.
“I thought your school didn’t allow weapons, “ I observed.
“A whip isn’t a weapon,” he replied hopefully.
“We’ll see what they think.”
