It's no secret that I am not a huge Star Wars fan. I have so many questions about the whole darn thing, and Brian, who is a big fan, can only take so much of my Star Wars mocking before he entirely ignores me. Recently, I've tried to improve my attitude about the epic and suggested that we watch the movies. Poor Brian really needed reinforcements for this task, and that's where Matt and Meg (especially Meg) come in.
The four of us spent our Saturday evening eating pizza, catching up, and watching Star Wars Episode 4. It was a far cry from how we spent our typical Saturday nights in college, but we certainly had a good time. While I tried to suppress my desire to refer to R2-D2 as a vacuum and C-3PO as a giant battery (and yes, I had to google search the proper spellings), Brian and Meg quoted lines, talked about character motivations and discussed their favorite Star Wars books.
While I wouldn't yet call myself a fanatic, I did learn a bit, I can explain the basic plot, and I didn't entirely hate the movie And, if nothing else, I bought myself a shopping trip or an ice cream outing....Brian owes me that much for sitting through the whole movie, right?!
