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.
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.
