Lego Darth Vader is to Ayden what Wilson was to Chuck Noland...
MISSING BEST FRIEND
If found please contact Ayden
“He’s not just a toy, he’s my best friend and I loved him. That’s why I’m crying, Momma.” – Ayden during the car trip home after Mr. Vader disappeared.
Description of the missing: two inches tall with a black cape covering a scarred plastic face. Black clothes to support the dark side he tends to lead. May attach himself to other plastic pieces using the circles on the bottom of his feet. Operates a Death Star vehicle when traveling. Red light saber may or may not be in his possession. Use extreme caution when approaching. Do not be alarmed if he suggests he's your father...Last seen using the force to light the sky on the 4th of July with fireworks. If found: please contact a very perturbed and altogether worried Ayden.
He’s lost. Nowhere to be found. I’m deemed “The worst Momma EVER!” because I refused to drive back to dive through an obscene crowd gathered at Jordan high school and search the large span of grass where Ayden last held onto his little lego Vader.
I am a desperate momma in search of a replacement best friend. Luckily, I am in close proximity to a Toys-R-Us and not stranded on a deserted island watching my 8 year old's 'best friend' drift away to sea. My heart broke when between the tears, Ayden looked up at me and managed to explain to me the reason he was so sad. Between gasps of air, he said the words that tore every heart string attached to my heart ..." There is no replacement momma, he was my best friend..." He was my best friend. BAM! If ever my heart has ripped in half, it was that moment. He was my best friend.
Don't you fret... posters have been made and are ready for posting. So if you happen to find yourself walking on the green grassy hill sprawling out in front of Jordan High School and stumble across a Lego best friend, please keep him in safe keeping.
