Dark Mom Of The Sith

E and I were picking up some dinner for ourselves and some friends.

I asked for extra napkins and said, "We're going to the Hollywood Bowl."

One of the two guys helping us said, "Oh, who are you seeing there?"

I replied, "John Williams," and was greeted with blank stares and questioning nods. One of them asked, "Who?"

"He's a composer," I explained. "He's done the music for lots of movies you know, such as Star Wars, E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark..."

They nodded, sort of knowingly. Although I wasn't sure they did know and was wondering what bizarro world I'd landed in.

All of a sudden, I saw the eyes of one of the guys light up. He glanced confidently at E and said, "So that's why you're wearing that shirt, huh?"*

The guy then excitedly asked, "So he made that Darth Vader theme?"

"Uh huh."

He chuckled and said, "That plays on my phone whenever my Mom calls."

I can't make up stuff this good, people.

*Because no one would ever wear a Star Wars shirt otherwise, right?
