This Is Not The Trilogy You Are Looking For

| Romantic | October 6, 2013

(My boyfriend and I are laying on the pullout couch in my basement. We are both giant nerds and the topic of ‘Star Wars’ happens to come up.)

Boyfriend: “Yeah, I saw the newer trilogy in theaters when they each came out.”

Me: “Ah, I see. My dad is a huge Star Wars nut, but he didn’t take me to see the first one or the second one because he thought I’d find them boring, just because I am a girl. I made him take me to the third one, and right after that he had me watch the original trilogy. I’ve been in love with the series ever since.”

Boyfriend: “Yeah, the original trilogy is good, but I prefer the newer trilogy.”

Me: “…excuse me?”

Boyfriend: “Well the newer trilogy has better effects and—”

Me: “But, the originals…”

Boyfriend: “Well yes, I see your point, but I mean the newer ones just look nicer.”


Boyfriend: “I know but I mean…”


Boyfriend: “But, DARTH MAUL!”

(Our shouting eventually wakes up my parents and my dog. My dad looks so proud when I explain the reason for the argument!)
