Yeah, this is basically what turning thirty-five feels like. Like a 2002 “SNL” skit featuring Jack Black. Interpret that as you may.
Thanks to everyone giving me birthday wishes today. Y’all are too kind.
P.S. Yes, Mom, that is Seth and that is also Amy.
Marky Mark funny?
I saw it with my own eyes.
Wonders never cease!
JP = John Piacquadio; ME = Me.
ME: Do you know how Chewbacca died?
JP: Nooooo, Chewbacca didn’t die!
ME: Yeah, in the Expanded Universe. Do you know how? Guess. What do you think killed Chewbacca?
JP: Ah…was it something he ate?
ME: [Laughing] No, it wasn’t something he ate.
JP: How’d he die?
ME: He was crushed to death by a moon.
JP: Ha! It took an entire dwarf planet to take him down!
ME: Yeah! He was rounding up Han Solo’s kids on some planet—
JP: [Laughing] Because he has so many of them!
ME: Well, two, at least. Anyway, Chewbacca’s trying to get them off the planet before this moon crashes into it, only he didn’t make it off the planet in time.
JP: Did you hear about that bear from the Will Ferrell movie?
