It was the evening of our town's summer festival, and it was still an hour or so before the fireworks were scheduled to start. Hundreds of kids had bought toy light-sabers from a festival vendor and were playing with them in the soccer field. It looked like a tryout for a little league Star Wars competition. My five-year-old managed to break his toy light-saber, and the vendor was completely sold out, so we couldn't replace it. It broke my heart to see my little one crying, so I went to my car, grabbed my E2L Outdoorsman and some duct tape, cut the colored plastic "beam" from its cheap, broken light source, and taped it to my E2L. Bingo my kid had the meanest, brightest light-saber that ever was.
