Total Nerds

So we're in line at a fast food place and I turn to Mr. O and say, "Wow, those Chili-cheese fries sure look good."

His response? With a Jedi wave of the hand he says, "That's not on the menu."

I arch my eyebrow in a question.

"These aren't the droids you're looking for."

Man, I love that guy.

(if you still have no idea - he was helping me steer clear of a dietary snafu with his Jedi skillz).

I had to google the phrase to know what you were talking about.


Can we still be friends?

Ummmmm- I am clueless---sorry.

Just sayin'

Will you still love me tomorrow?

Elizabeth-W said...

Me, too. Clueless.

I love it! Your husband is awesome. He would get along fabulously with my husband.

kado! said...

HA! Love it! what a good husband!

Elizabeth-W said...

Oh. Duh. Upon second reading, it was perfectly clear! LOL! Good guy!

Mrs. Organic said...

EW - phew! I was thinking if you didn't get it, I really was way out there.

Some of my happiest, most romantic moments with my sweetheart have been our Total Nerd Moments. I think I'm going to brazenly steal your husband's move and use it on my guy next time I see him!

I'm guessing that last line of explanation was added later because everyone was confused? *I* would have gotten it without the clarification . . . but then there is no question about Dean's and I being nerds.

I mean Dean and I being nerds. Or Dean's and my being nerds. (I'm also a grammar nerd, kind of.)

Love it!

Mrs. Organic said...

Yes, well I didn't have the whole "jedi wave of the hand" thing in there either - that probably helped.

Nancy Face said...

I am a total and complete Star Wars nerd, so I LOVE THIS! :D

I have ALWAYS loved that line...and use it all the time.

I passed the nerd test, too. Though reading it post-Jedi wave - I could so see Mr. O doing this! I'm going to have to forward this to Fritz.

(hey AND commenting without freezing the machine. Maybe the Force is with me today.)

Omgirl said...

That's exactly the kind of nerd I need with me when I grocery shop!

"These are not the treats you are looking for."

Mrs. Organic said...

Emma J - I was hoping you'd get that and yay for the force!
