"Oh so squishy and so sweet!" Charlie said in a sing-song voice.
It was a lazy Saturday afternoon, and everyone was sitting in the living room.
"Ugh." Taryn sighed as she flicked through the TV channels, "There's nothing to watch today."
"Well," Claire said looking up from her mid-term studies, "I'd say since you've gone through at least fifty channels there must be something to watch."
"Alright, nothing good to watch. Unless you've got a bright idea." Taryn replied.
"Why don't we watch a DVD?" Claire suggested jumping up and walking over to the DVD case.
"Great idea, Claire. We haven't watched some of them in years." Charlie said.
"Hmm..." Claire grunted as she riffled through the top drawer.
She then shut the top drawer and moved to the second, and then onto the bottom.
"Hey look!" Claire said as she came to the bottom of the drawer full of old cards and she found DVD.
"Star Wars. Wanna watch it?" Claire asked.
"Sure! I used to love Star Wars." Taryn agreed.
One and a Half Hours Later...
"That was great! Can we watch the next one!?" Charlie shouted.
" I don't see why not." Taryn said.
About a Million Hours Later...
"We just watched all eight Star Wars episodes." Claire mumbled, as she turned off the TV, "That was awesome."
"Yeah." Taryn and Charlie agreed.
There was a pause.
"Um," Claire cleared her throat, "What do we do now?"
"Oh! I know! How about we go to the mall?" Charlie asked.
Everyone agreed so they all got there coats and boots and walked to town.
As the girls walked through the mall, they began to get bored. There was nothing interesting here either.
"You know we should just go home," Taryn sighed, "There's nothing-"
Taryn broke off mid sentence and ran into a store called 'Logan's'.
As Charlie and Claire followed Taryn into the store they saw her standing in front of a big display.
"Taryn what are you doing?" Claire asked.
"Yeah, what's going on?" Charlie chimed in.
"You guys have to see this." Taryn said and stepped out of the way.
And there was a huge display, but what really caught the girls attention was all the Star Wars stuff.
"Cool, right?!" Taryn exclaimed.
The girls all crowded around the display to 'look'.
"Look. It's the Emperor!" Claire said, excitedly.
"Cool, sand trooper!" Charlie said.
Charlie slipped to the floor and began looking through the shelves.
Charlie reached for Batman.
"Aww, look at his lobster thermador." Charlie said.
(Get the reference?)
Half an Hour later...
"Charlie are you ready to go?" Taryn called.
"Um, just a moment." Charlie answered.
"Hi guys." Charlie said to the plushies in the basket in the corner, "I'm going to bring one of you home with me. Which one of you would like to come?"
"Chewie is coming home with me." Charlie announced happily.
And so the girls left, chatting excitedly.
Leaving 'Logan's' empty.
I don't know why I like this one so much.
Oh! And thanks to my amazing, wonderful little brother who let me use hie Lego in this post.
(There Logan, I did it. Happy? ;) )
