may the force be with me

As I was falling asleep last night I started having those half-asleep thoughts.  You know the ones I mean?  It seems like the best thoughts happen then, when you don’t want to get up to write them down, and then by morning they are gone.  But I remember mine from last night.  I  wondered, between long blinks and yawns, what I’d do with The Force, if it were strong with me.

I’d use it to Jedi Mind Trick any large crowd into impromptu re-creations of Michael Jackson’s Thriller music video.

I would also use the force to convince people to make me sandwiches, like, all the time.  “You will hold the mayo.”

That’s it.  That’s all I’ve got so far.  What, were you expecting something deeper, more philanthropic?  This is not the post you are looking for.




  1. “I don’t need to be at that work meeting. You’ll let me skip it.”

    or “That’s not the attitude I’m looking for. You be nice.”

    Mostly I think I’d just use it to make the kids dress themselves.
