Darth Vader says:
Come to The Edge, not the Dark Side, to celebrate the Star Wars saga with others who love it as much as you do. Dress up as your favorite character and enjoy Star Wars spoofs, trivia, games and refreshments during this multimedia party. If you own Star wars collectibles and want to show them off, bring them to the party. Have fun, you will!
Friday, March 9th from 6:30 to 9:30 pm in The Edge
The following is a transcript of my interview with Darth Vader.
ME: Will you be at the library’s Star Wars party?
DV: I don’t do parties. Besides, I have much work to do.
ME: Of course. Building more servant droids?
DV: That was a childhood hobby.
ME: You’re breathing is really raspy. Are you okay?
DV: I’m fine.
ME: Breath mint?
DV: How would I . . .?
ME: Nevermind. Sorry. We were hoping you’d come to the Star Wars party to do some tricks with The Force-
DV: The Force should never be used for entertainment. Do not take me for some conjurer of cheap of tricks!
ME: But you can levitate stuff, right?
At this point, Darth Vader shakes his head and starts walking away, his cape flowing dramatically. I call after him to return, but he aims a hand in my direction, threatening, you know, The Force, and so I wave “goodbye.”
