Okay, Here's Just How Big of a Dork I Am

(Post #5 0f 32)

What follows is an honest-to-god back and forth coversation via email, of which I was an integral part.
It started with a photo & a joke about Jabba the Hut; I have shortened what was at least two dozen emails.
Not even the names have been changed to protect the geeky.
Please don't judge me too harshly.

Robert Barron wrote: Lando Egan? God, that is hilarious...

Rob Egan: that's cool. I can deal with being Lando. Just as long as I get that little wrist remote to control Reed "Lobot" Anderson with.

Rob Egan wrote: Let's not forget who flew the Millennium Falcon into the second Death Star to destroy the main reactor. Not to mention pulling Luke off the bottom of Cloud City after Vader handed him his ass, and infiltrating Jabba's palace in order to facilitate Han's rescue. Lando is no slouch. His methods may seem unorthodox at first, but he gets it done.

Robert Barron wrote: Have you never heard the phrase "One awwshit wipes out 10,000 attaboys"? Sure, he tries to make up for the fact that he got them in the mess to begin with, but it's a day late and a dollar short, thank you very much.

Rob Egan wrote: I prefer the "A man can build 1000 bridges..." version, but I see your point. However, you have to remember "Don't hate the player. Hate the game!" The empire did arrive in Bespin before Han was back in contact with Lando. I think under pressure he did the best anyone could ask for. And he managed to hit on Leia a couple times in the mix. All I ask is that you walk a mile in his boots before rushing to judgment.
