I have a lot of random thoughts throughout the day. However, getting beaten and buried in the side yard by nerds isn’t generally one of them. Today that thought crossed my mind in a very real way. It was both invigorating and terrifying at the same time, kind of like when you take your own candy into the movies or when you accidentally drop a kitten and catch it in mid-air.
Today started like any other Friday: work, go home, eat, go to Zach’s house, and then head to Wendy’s for our usual Friday routine. I love a good routine. In fact, I don’t even have to tell the cashier what I want anymore…usually. I always get the plain #1. Always. So now I just nod and grin at them and that’s about it. It’s a wonderful thing. Anyway, normally we eat and then leave to go play video games. But today, today we stayed for a little while longer.
…..all because Zach put a tweet on the Twitter that I couldn’t help but comment on. And then this long, cleverly messed up, horribly illiterate and well thought out nerd-esk conversation broke out. It might rock the boats of some people, but for most it’ll go right over their heads. I almost feel like I should apologize to the groups of sci-fi fans mentioned below for violating some of the most sacred stories and plots… But I can’t seem to bring myself to do it; I’m just too proud of this conversation. I hope you don’t get too confused and distressed over it. Brace yourself, young grasshopper.
Note: If you are a sci-fi-esk person who is easily upset and/or bothered by Twitter, BBC, crossing story lines, making fun of the sci-fi/fantasy genre as a whole, or the use of #hashtags, I suggest you hit alt+F4 now. Actually, I suggest you keep reading, but that’s just me.

@adam828 Did you just CS Lewis all over the Hunger Games?!?
@ZachSteinbrook I did. I C.S. Lewised allllll over it. I’ll do it again: “One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to…”
@adam828 This reminds me of when Steve Jobs defeated Smaug in Harry Potter and the Deathly Jedi.
