Mr Spock Pez Dispenser
I’m a huge Star Trek fan especially of the Original Series, and the Next Generation. I couldn’t get in to Deep Space Nine, or Voyager, while I enjoyed Enterprise with Scott Bakula. I’ve read over a hundred Star Trek books and am always looking for another one to read. I vacillate between Kirk or Picard as my favorite Captain. Can you blame me? I mean, I’m only human.
I attended a Star Trek convention about 20 years ago. John Delancie, aka “Q” was there and he was terrific. I consider myself a trekker, not a trekkie. I don’t wear Spock ears, or speak Klingon, but I can easily whip out a Vulcan hand salute. “Live long and prosper.”
Every year for Xmas my wife and daughter agonize over what to get me. I’m a man of simple needs, simple pleasures, and simple mind, so I rarely come up with any good ideas. My daughter Jessica got me a Star Trek calendar several years ago, and it has become her traditional Xmas gift to me. This year the month of March features coincidentally, Mr. Spock in all his logical glory.
A couple of years ago my daughter bought me the complete set of Star Trek The Original Series, limited edition Pez dispensers. Yes I know, you’re jealous. When I opened the box I took out the Mr Spock dispenser, only because he was the one closest to the opening, loaded him with pez, and commenced eating. As a public service to anyone reading this, I must tell you that Pez is really not that tasty.
After polishing off all that delicious pez, instead of placing Mr Spock back in the box, I put him on my bookshelf. Now every time I look at Mr Spock, I think of my daughter Jessica and how much I love her, and how overrated pez is as a snack food.
