He wants a real sword.
Not a stick fashioned to look like a sword.
Not a pretend sword.
Not some cardboard cutout of a sword.
A real sword, damnit.
What does he want with it?
He wants to be a pirate.
"You're going to need a ship too," I tell him.
"Yes," he says.
"So you need a real boat and a real sword."
"Yeeah," he says.
So I'll be on Amazon tonight looking for a real boat and a real sword.
Please let me know if anyone has those items.
