Conversation with hero

Jack: Stop! Stop typing, dammit.

Me: What’s the matter now?

Jack: I am not Anakin Skywalker. I don’t look like him, I don’t sound like him, and I’ve certainly never been called Anni. You need to get over this teenage fan-girl obsession you have for him.

Me: But those petulant, smoldering looks…why can’t you do that?

Jack: Lady, I’ve given Beth so many smoldering looks her hair’s on fire. You just haven’t noticed.

Me: Could you maybe channel a little of that supressed passion and anger?

Jack: And maybe grab my heroine by the throat and choke her half to death?

Me: Well…no, I guess that wouldn’t go over well in a romance.

Jack: Heavy breathing?

Me: If you wouldn’t mind.

Jack: *throws hands up in disgust*

Me: *wanders away to watch Episode II*

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! Still haven’t got to see Ep III.

    It’s NOT fair!

    But I was kinda going for Darth Maul in Ep I. You gotta love the way he moves….

    Oh, and a friend of mine once went to a local carnival with his young son, dressed up as Darth Maul and… Darth Small….

    I still think that’s hilarious, but most of the locals just looked at him blankly, apparently.

    Anna, they probably got the same looks we got when I dressed the 2-year-old now-tall kid as D’Artagnan for Halloween. One person got it.

    Jack says: Thank you, Sasha! *insert smoldering look*

    (Shan: Hey! Stop flirting with the other transcriptionists, Jack. She’s not going to type your nookie scene any faster than me.)

    To truly sink further into GrowUpShannonland, my 9 year old sister and I have been debating Anakin Episode II and Anakin Episode III this moring. While it probably completes my slide into Dirty Old Ladydom, I prefer EII Anakin. But she thinks Luke is hotter than Han, so what does she know?
