"The school bully wanted to pummel me every day after school. I would walk home, and he would wait for me. He would come out from behind a corner and — just like in some old movie — he would start beating on me. One day he came after me, and I said, ‘Stop! I will draw you a picture of Darth Vader if you leave me alone.’
"And he had his fist cocked, and he said, ‘Really?’
"And I said, ‘Yeah, and it’ll be GOOD. I promise.’"
