In an attempt, and a successful one at that, to be frugal, we went to our local library on Saturday and saw Star Wars: A New Hope (IV). They passed out Tootsie Pops as snacks, of which Isaac ate at least 4. It was really fun seeing this Star Wars on a bigger screen and with surround sound but I never realized until that showing how whiny Luke really was. After his uncle tells him to clean up the droids, or something like it, Luke complains:
“But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!”
It was said in the nasal high pitch of a teenage boy but I guess it could also be comparable to the reaction I’d get after asking my boys to clean their rooms:
“But I was going outside to pick up some rocks for my flying saucer converters!”
“But I was going into my room to pick up Yuke Skywalker and Buzz Yightyear!” (Isaac is still struggling with his “L”s)
Who knows, I may have three Jedi’s on my hands in few whiny years. I’d better pull down the light sabers and let them get to their training (I keep having to hide their light sabers as there is sometimes too much of the dark side in their manner of fighting).
