So, I was in drama class and this guy (let’s just call him Ranch) was in my group for a project. We had to teach a bunch of 3rd graders how to express emotion in a simple and quick game. After teaching the 3rd graders, this is a conversation him and I had.
Me: What day is it?
Me: HOLY CRAP!
Me: 25 more FREAKING days until Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released, and hopefully a Reylo storyline.
Ranch: What the hell is Reylo? No one watches Star Wars anymore. It is sooo dead. The last movie was like– what, 20 years ago?
