May The Force Be With You

"Do or do not. There is no try."
~Yoda

Dearest Star Wars Fans,

In honor of Star Wars Day (which I think is today), I felt I should share my Star Wars moment of the week. As someone who really, really, wants  to be a Star Wars junkie, I’m starting to think that perhaps it’s just not meant to be.

While leaving a really tense meeting, I ran into a bookshelf and knocked over someone’s entire collection of Star Wars Pez dispensers. Chewy’s head fell off, and I couldn’t get it back on.  So now, somewhere in Aquinas, there’s a Chewy waiting to dispense sugary treats but can’t because he’s headless. I honestly don’t know if this is more or less embarrassing than the fact that for years, I thought Ben Kenobi’s alias was Obi-JUAN not Obi-WAN.  AND wondered in what episode we’d finally figure out what his sombrero looks like.

Needless to say, here’s hoping The Force is with all of you, because I’m pretty sure it isn’t with me!
