Watched LoA for the billionth time because I respect myself. When Tafas shared the snacks, I found myself thinking "He's well versed in that shit, man, give him some chocolate if you really want to show him you care."
I'm gonna write a book on the proper methods of buttering up T.E. Lawrence. Gotta help meet that "100 books written about T.E. yearly" quota. The two big ones would have to be chocolate and hating on the semicolon. He'd probably be pretty psyched to get like... chain lube, too. Play your cards right and he would definitely send you weird, lengthy letters, which is, of course, the dream. God bless history's most interesting and eccentric manlet.
Anyway, I can't look at Tafas nowadays without thinking about how my comrade RJ decided Tafas was his favorite character 2 minutes before his demise when we watched the film. R.I.P. Tafas. You had an endearing giggle, your historical counterpart was a bit of a curmudgeon, you were Ned's Best Friend for a (brief) time, and you were RJ's favorite.
