Things That Make Me Absurdly Happy VII

Been watching Lord of the Rings with Oldest Boy (9) and Younger Son (7) because they’ve been asking, and I’ve been putting it off, and finally we agreed they were ready for Sheer Awesomeness.

You know that scene in The Two Towers where Legolas rides a shield down a staircase while shooting orcs left and right with his Elvish Arrows of Unlikely Accuracy?

The sort of antics that made those pirate movies plausible.

And then, as he dismounts, he stabs an orc in the chest with that selfsame shield?

And he sticks the landing!

The boys were on their feet, wooing and pumping their fists in the air. Younger Son, overcome by the moment, shouted, “Surf’s up!

My boys are men now. Nerdy, wonderful men.
