My son is playing a Lego Star Wars game. Obi-Wan's facial hair and cloak attached to the miniature, fingerless image of the little lego dude we all know and love. Hey, his light saber slides right in those 3D, c-shaped hands. "Sooo cute!" Why is that? Little things are always cute, especially to those of us with internal sex organs. Motherly instinct. Babies are compact. So are the new 8 oz cans of single serving sodas. Ya know, that's not a bad idea. Less half-consumed diet vanilla cokes sitting on random household surfaces. Diet cherry vanilla Dr Pepper, mmmmm. Those tiny, grinning, skeletonish jungle inhabitants in The Mummy Returns; little spears in little hands, their heads a bit too large for their bodies, wreaking havoc, killing everything in their path... they're cute too ;-)
