“Hello! My name is Indigo Montoya! You killed my father! Prepare to die!”

Who doesn’t love a good sword fight?  I know I do.  The problem is so does my 3-year-old daughter.  I want to make sure my daughter isn’t a sissy girl so I figure she is old enough to be armed.  Armed and dangerous.

As much as I don’t want my daughter to be a sissy girl I don’t want to be killed in my sleep.  What is a guy to do?  Well a macho guy like me goes to Pintrest to see suggestions.  It was the right decision.

My sword of choice?  The pool noodle.

It is beyond simple.  I bought a pool noodle and cut it in half.  Had some left over fancy duct tape and BLAMO a sword that won’t get me killed.

There are some fancier ones online using duct tape and electric tape to make it look Star Wars Light Saberish.  Give it a try.  Arm you child.

    Max: There’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there’s usually only one thing you can do.
    Inigo Montoya: What’s that?
    Miracle Max: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

    Haha cute! And purple, nice color. I want an update after the battle. I imagine a pool noodle could still do some damage…to you, of course lol
