Star Wars

Padawans

The force is strong with them.

My kids, the girl with the braid and the blond boy next to her, received their diplomas stating that their training as Jedi was complete.  I’m pretty sure I was giggling and wishing that I could have been up their with them.

Argh…

I can’t believe I get to see Vader.  The real Vader.  Darth Vader.  The Darth Va…what?  He’s not the real Vader?  But…(sob), but…

Stormtroopers

Disneyland has an attraction called “Jedi Training Academy.”  Both of my children were called up, along with a couple dozen more, to the stage, given Jedi robes and lightsabers and taught to fight like Jedi.

I liked this attraction.  Actually, I loved this attraction.  After the kids have been trained, the Imperial Death March starts up and two stormtroopers (above) run down the aisle and onto the stage.  The stage floor starts rising and Darths Vader and Maul jump out and duel with every one of the Jedi trainees.

I, overcome with emotion and joy, leaned over to my wife and quietly exclaimed, “I think I just peed myself a little.”
