    Wow, suddenly I feel really lucky for having been able to chase beavers as a kid (YES I UNDERSTAND WHAT I JUST SAID) and get away clean.

    @imaginary - that's a variation on this theme... easy to see how it works if you work out the angles involved.

    @imaginary - I've been looking at that chocolate diagram for ten minutes and I still feel like it's tricking me.

    Back story: my four-year-old son had a scheduled surgery on both his legs last Tuesday, and was sent home with a walker and knee immobilizers — neither of which he enjoys. He especially associates the walker with pain, since while in the hospital they asked him to stand and walk with it and it hurt (a lot) post-op.

    We happen to be good friends with comic artist and illustrator Ben Dewey (author of the Tragedy Series, a Tumblr you should have checked out, like, yesterday) and his wife, Lindsey. We're all big Star Wars fans — and so is our son. The other day I Instagrammed a photo of my son's walker, and the Offbeat Empire's Megan Finley (you know, the Offbeat Bride editor who hates babies?) made a comment that it reminded her of an AT-AT. This had me thinking: what if we made the walker look more like an AT-AT and let our son shoot at us (something we usually strongly discourage) while he was standing and walking? Another friend suggested we print out a picture of an AT-AT and attach it to the walker, and then Lindsey told me Ben had volunteered to create an AT-AT for the walker.
    Around 20 hours later, Ben and Lindsey came over to our place with the most impressive walker I've ever seen


    Little boy gets surgery and totally sweet Star Wars walker.
