Unleash The Dragon

Wow, the freakiness just keeps getting freakier around here.

Now I'll admit (under interrogation only) to maybe having some slightly geekish tendencies. I know way too much about the Star Wars movies, love video games with excessive amounts of fantasy violence and may even know how I'm eventually going to acquire my superhero powers (bitten by a radioactive weasel).

But I like to think these things are kept under wraps and only my closest friends know about them. There's no Star Trek uniform wearing, action figure collecting or convention attending.

Or mailbox displaying.

Yup, that looks to be an actual metal dragon mailbox. You know that has to be custom made. You just don't head down to the Home Despot and pick that out. That's something that looks like it fits in better in the real estate Branson listings.

Why do I have the feeling that this used to be someone's parent's house before they passed away? And I'm betting on two things.

First, he still lives in the basement.

Second, he's still single, ladies.

I will refrain from any predictions about his weight, his skin condition, whether he's ever kissed a girl or whether you'll have to dress up in the Princess Leia outfit fairly often. So get into your costume and head on out to Utah to grab this catch of a man. A keeper like this won't last on the market for long. Probably only another 10 or 20 years.

I must be a geek (totally out of the closet) because I find that mailbox pretty funny in an almost-not-pitiful way. I think I'm just a sucker for unique little things. Once my husband and I got a kick out of a mailbox shaped like a mail truck.

I like to think that maybe he's a professional welder/artist and that's just a display of his talent.

But somehow, I can't really convince myself of that.
