So, I have always liked this quote from the original movies. I have a Yoda shirt that I wore to a Star Wars party and a girl came over to me and said, “I love Yoda, he’s my favorite.” I was slightly skeptical because of the kind of girl she is, so I asked, “What’s the most famous things he says?” And she stared at me blankly.
We’re talking about best seller movies when they came out, so I won’t say it’s underground and only nerds can embrace this, it just seemed a strange thing to lie about.
Trust me, I’m not judging anyone, I grew up being told I was weird and that people sometimes just tune me out. So I learned to be quiet and not talk about things. I learned to wait until someone else brought something up before talking about it. I would ask if someone liked something once, if they didn’t know, I didn’t bring it up again. This of course makes me awkward and shy around people I don’t know and even more socially inept than before.
I just find this new trend of what people are lying about a strange thing. Like a group of people who went to see the last HP movie at a midnight showing and then made fun of the people in costume. REALLY? Or having someone mention to me, repeatedly, how much they LURVED the last HP movie and not know what a horcrux is? Now that The Hunger Games is coming out as a major motion picture, people who know I read the series back when come over to tell me how much they loved the book, but they don’t how it ended? The other day when someone I know, who is not a stranger, asked what I did all weekend, I admitted, I rewatched all fourteen episodes of Firefly and they offhandedly replied, “Oh, I watch that.” I’m not sure if I believe that, but I didn’t feel like asking either just because I am positive she was just saying it to say it.
Don’t get me wrong, when you find someone that you can have a good conversation with about something you have in common it can be loads of fun and sometimes it’s nice to have that connection. But when people make things up to … well I can’t even begin to fathom their reasons why?
I mean… I guess it’s just a thing going on right now because there seems to be this Harry Potter FB page:
