Day 361- A Princess, really


THE THEME: Made up inside my head.

Stick with me here, people.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away (by which I mean the next town over and about 26 years ago) I saw part of Star Wars (A New Hope to those who care about these things). And in my tiny little child mind, I saw Princess Leia in R2’s hologram thingy and I didn’t see a princess, I saw A WITCH. AN EVIL, BUNHEADED WITCH OUT TO GET ALL THE ADORABLE DROIDS (and probably Luke Skywalker too).

I couldn’t even tie my shoelaces, but I knew, KNEW this woman was the nemesis of the story.

To be fair, I *may* have gotten The Wizard of Oz mixed up with Star Wars in my wee brainpan. It’s also completely possible that I just totally mistook the whole thing; I thought that Leia was actually there, in Obi-Wan’s hut, just… you know. Tiny. And blue.

In my defense, I was five.

And pretty much scared of everything.

Seriously. One time a Garfield comic scared me so much I couldn’t sleep. If there was a spider that had been seen in the vicinity of my room in the last week, I wouldn’t sleep there (in my defense, SPIDERS, people. SPIDERS. Can you blame me?).

So when I was an older, wiser, and very sage ten year old, I saw A New Hope. My mind = blown. Not only was Star Wars COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY AWESOME, but there were no flying monkeys! And Princess Leia not only wasn’t an evil witch with magical powers (and possibly 6 inches tall and blue), she was a sassy sassy lady with a laser gun.

I had made the whole damn thing up in my mind.

    I can see how such a thing could happen. So I’m guessing your girl has only ever seen Star Wars then – so as not to be confused. :)

    Hey – you’re almost at 365!!!

    What a great post! Memories of my love for Princess Leia have returned… from my Halloween costume my mom made in 1978 to the Kleenex box house I made for my Leia action figure. This is going to make me sleep well tonight! :)
