Always A Stormtrooper, Never A Bride

| Romantic | June 26, 2012

(I am talking with my friends in a hallway during a sci-fi convention. As we talk, two Stormtroopers come up and accost someone dressed as Princess Leia.)

Storm-trooper 1: “Ma’am, you’re going to have to come with us.”

Leia: “Are you serious?”

Storm-trooper 2: “Yes, ma’am. We are.”

Leia: “I can’t believe it. This always happens to me!”

(Leia plays along, and allows the Storm-troopers to lead her down the hall. Suddenly, out of nowhere, someone dressed as Han Solo appears. He pushes the Storm-troopers away from Leia, and holds them back with a blaster.)

Han: “Princess, are you okay?”

Leia: “Yes, I’m fine.”

Han: “Princess…” *he turns, drops to one knee, pulls out a ring* “…will you marry me?”

(I thought it might have been a joke or a show at first, but it was real. All four of them posed for pictures for those of us who had been lucky enough to see this event.)
