Not THAT Mary...
my best friend from high school in Texas, Mary D.
Mary, did you know that I thought about you last week? I went to the movies and flashed back to 1977 when you were 16 and had your driver's license and I was only 15 and riding shotgun...
We went to the movies then. We decided to go to that sci-fi flick that everyone was talking about. We weren't especially into sci-fi, but it sounded interesting. There weren't any big-name Hollywood types in it, but it sounded interesting.
When it was over, we just looked at each other- dumbstruck. WHAT WAS THAT?
Me- that was amazing.
Me- there was no swearing!
You- there was no sex!
Together- THE GOOD GUYS WON!!!!!!!!!!!!
And then we went to K-Mart and bought Star Wars T-shirts and called each other C-3PO and R2-D2 for a few months. And somehow, I managed to see it 4 more times in the theater that year.
Last week brought it all back. Only, I wasn't 15 but I went with a 15 year-old. And our reactions were very similar to the ones from 1977. And we can't wait for episode 8. :->
Mary in Texas, I should probably look you up on facebook, but I don't have a fb account. I hope you and your family are doing well and that you have equally good memories of our high school times!
May the Force Be With You.
