“Who is that behind you? Jesus?” my editor asked, noticing my son’s artwork from several years ago on the wall behind me.
“No, it’s George Lucas,” I replied. “You can raise and lower him with this little tab in the back.”
I demonstrated the Amazing Ascension Action! capability of my son’s art piece.
My editor raised a brow. “I’m pretty sure thats supposed to be Jesus… you know, ascending into heaven.”
I took a long look at it. “No, that’s definitely George Lucas. It’s how he probably dresses when he’s hanging around Skywalker Ranch.”
“You’re serious?” said my editor as she moved the figure up and down. “Why in God’s name would George Lucas be dressed in robes ascending into the heavens?”
I shook my head. “Have you even SEEN the Star Wars movies?”
