Sneak Attack (+1d6)

So Savior walks up to me in the midst of writer's workshop. Eyes half-closed, he says in a thick vague accent. "Yoo have underrestimated me . . .and the element . . .of SUPRISE!" at which point he launches a green squishy squid toy into my stomach.

What the hell?


  1. It's a reference to Get Smart (the remake).

    On one hand, making references now bodes well for his future in smartassness.

    On the other hand, he's referencing Get Smart (the remake).

    On the other other hand, that line is apparently one of the high points, which might mitigate the other hand.

  2. I hope my kids are as weird as some of your students. It's exhausting, I'm sure..but makes for a good story later.
