"The Plan" according to Andrew
Andrew: Mom, there was a BIG CRIME SCENE at J's house.
Mom: Really, were you guys playing good guys and bad guys?
Andrew: There was this big kid and he was holding down my friend and my friend said, "Help me!" So I told the big kid, "Excuse me, but please let go of my friend."
Mom: Did that work?
Andrew: No...he wouldn't let go, so I kicked him in the BOTTOM! (Andrew spins around on one foot and karate chops the invisible enemy).
Mom: You really kicked him or you pretended to kick him?
Andrew: I really kicked him and then he threw me on the couch. So I did this. (more elaborate karate chops and twists and turns). Then he threw me on the couch again. Then I gave him a choice. "If you get off my friend I won't give you a Jedi slam, but if you won't I will give you a Jedi slam." The crime scene raged on enemy to enemy again. Then we went to eat lunch. Then afterward it raged on again. We had to fight, fight, fight.
Mom: It sounds like it was a pretend fight. Did you like playing like that?
Andrew: (exasperated) Mom, I had to help out my friend! I asked the big kid nicely to stop, but he didn't. So I helped my friend. Being a helper is following Jesus's plan. If I had not helped J, that would be bad and I don't want to follow Satan's plan. So, um, I chose the right.
