Call me a geek or a nerd but often when I feel unsettled about something I always say to myself that “there is a disturbance in the force.” It is usually accompanied by an image of Darth Vader walking through the Death Star in search of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Sometimes I’ll try the jedi mind trick on myself “you feel good. You are strong and wise. The force is strong within you.”
And then I’ll open my eyes and gesture at an object on the table willing it to move. Thus far the object rarely complies with my command and usually only if I take additional steps. It is a little disturbing that my jedi lessons have not been more effective in helping me achieve the desired result.
However they have been good in a number of areas such as feeling cool while clothed in a robe, feeling secure while clutching a big stick that serves as a lightsaber as well as being a master of making the noise that accompanies the sound of a lightsaber that has been swung through the air.
As a bonus that sound effect can be adjusted to simulate the sound of a door opening on the Enterprise.
I’d write more but I am having trouble with tribbles and must run now.
