Before I react to watching “Star Wars: Episode V” for the first time, I’d like to reenact for you a super horrific discovery I had over dinner w/ some work pals mere days before watching “The Empire Strikes Back”…
Coworker #1: “Man, I’m not getting much sleep lately. We’ve got some Jedi Twins living above us.”
Me: “What are Jedi Twins?”
Coworker #1: “Uh….”
Coworker #2: “You know, like Luke and Leia!”
Me: Pausing for a minute to ingest what I’d just heard before proclaiming loudly to the whole restaurant, “Luke and Leia are siblings?!?!”
Now, I’ve experienced quite a bit of devastation in my life, like that one time I dropped a half-eaten Dilly Bar on the ground a few minutes ago. But you DO NOT KNOW the devastation I felt finding out that the two characters in Star Wars (whom I thought were going to make sweet, little rebel babies together) were in fact, twins. And on top of that, everyone in my immediate surroundings let me go on and on about how cute of a couple they made. Blech!
So (coming back to square one now) here is my reaction to “Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back” in light of this life-altering information:
Huh? What’s that you ask? What about the whole “Luke, I’m your father” thing? Pshhhhhh… Big deal. I KNEW ABOUT THAT ONE ALREADY.
Anywho, here’s to hoping they find out they are siblings soon. Maybe their friends will tell them over dinner.
