No, I still have NOT seen Star Wars. Yes, you read that right. Star Wars. THE MOVIE. I have not seen any of the Trilogy or any of the newfangled ones that are apparently prequels; I know a random thing or two from living with a Star Wars-obsessed husband (not like, LARPER, obsessed just normal, I grew up wanting to be Luke Skywalker obsessed). His family almost didn’t let me INTO the family because of my “bizarre” failure to have viewed the classic films that they believe to be essential viewing for you to actually be a human on the planet. EVERYONE has seen Star Wars.
Yeah, okay, I get it. I get it so much that my stubborn goat Capricorn ass will NEVER see them simply by virtue of being told that I MUST see them. I also just know that, as an almost 40 year old mama, I don’t think Star Wars will have that same magical “feels like the first time” effect it had on a 5 year old in 1977. I’d rather watch all my DVR’d biographies of serial killers and mass murderers on the Discovery ID channel or RuPaul’s Drag Race, so everyone just leave me alone. It ain’t happenin’. I’m never, ever, ever watching Star Wars together (yeah, I’m singing it Taylor Swift-style to be even MORE petulantly, adolescently annoying).
We do, however, have a ton of Star Wars shit in our house. I have a husband who still loves covets the memorabilia and a 3 year old whom he delights in sharing that love and has quickly accepted the passion for the force. My son’s Darth Vader and Boba Fett impressions are pretty awesome. YES, even I know who they are, I’m not a complete dolt.
We’re still waiting for some kick-ass Boba Fett sneakers like the limited edition ones Adidas made for adults for kiddos for Finn but until then I can deal with these KIDS STAR WARS FOR CREWCUTS tees. For once, something the hubby and I both love aesthetically the kids can rock. Crewcuts tees feel like baby unicorn wings after taking a bath with the Snuggle teddy bear. They’re crazy soft. AND the Darth Vader shirt glows in the dark. Even this girl knows anything that glows in the dark is like nerd herd porn. Kids seem to like it, too.
