An Imagined Conversation With This Furry Model

Me: I like your cape.

Model: Thank you.

Me: It’s very Empire Strikes Back.

Model: What is that supposed to mean? Me: I mean it looks warm and cozy.

Model: Oh, OK.

Me: Like you crawled inside a dead tauntaun to keep warm.

Model: What?

Me: I know, I know, tauntauns are white, but besides the color it’s pretty spot-on.

Model: I’m not really sure how to respond to that.

Me: It’s a huge compliment! Have you ever seen The Empire Strikes Back?

Model: Maybe. I don’t remember.

Me: Well that scene is pretty unforgettable–when Han Solo slices it open with a lightsaber and stuffs Luke inside? It’s every kid’s dream! You’re living the dream right now.

Model: I’ll take your word for it.
