So, star wars is on its way. May 19th is the date for all of the fans to get their freak on. Unfortunately I will not be able to see this blessed film on its opening date. Its funny, I remember when Star Wars episode II came out in 2002, I camped out with my friends Nate King and Emsa Harding in front of the theater 52 hours to its release. We were(are) just dorks. We had our tent pitched, our camping chairs out, and a extension cable ran out to the nearest outlet. We were playing a butt-load of Halo on XBox and were having a wonderful time. Then these freaks that thought we were dorks decide to start bombing us with water balloons and calling us “nerds.” Holy crap was it funny. We got angry and starting acting all football-cocky. We ran up the hill across park avenue and chased them up the hill and over the fence. We never were able to pound them, so we waited. Like the true Star Wars lovin, video game playing dorks we were, we waited for our next water balloon threat. We waited… Then on came the barrage of water again. This time, ever so close to Emsa’s XBox! Emsa was pissed, so pissed I think he pissed himself. But Emsa was this 5′5″ very thin kid with huge hair. There was no way that he was gonna be able to do anything to his rivals. So me and Nate decide that we are gonna hop in the Honda Accord and chase em. Keep in mind that I don’t really get in fights so I don’t even know what we are gonna do if we get these kids in a corner. But, we chase em. We chase em all over Helena. Up by the mall, down by Hastings, up towards the Man Store, till finally we get them cornered in the back of the Man Store ( It wasn’t the Man Store then ). So we get out of the car all chests a’ puffin n stuff. We start screaming at them and I swear it was like something on an elementary school playground. They are screaming “Why are you chasing us, you are gonna kill us!.” Then we yell back, “well, well….why were you throwing water balloons at us!, why why would you do that!.” They are like “we were just having some fun!.” Then we’re like “well, well….you almost ruined my friends Xbox, thats why!.” And that was pretty much it. Nerds rule.
So, theres my story. Any other good Star Wars stories in the closet that you guys wan’t to bring out? Any favorite Star Wars moments? Heres mine:
In Star Wars: A New Hope on the Millenium Falcon when R2 and Chewy are playing space chess.
C3PO: He made a fair move. Screaming about it won’t help you.
Han: Let him have it. It’s not wise to upset a Wookiee.
C3PO: But sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid.
Han: That’s ’cause droids don’t pull people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.
C3PO: I see your point, sir. I suggest a new strategy, R2. Let the Wookiee win.
As a side note, one of my best friends Justin Able dressed up as Han Solo for Halloween. That was the raddest ever.
