The End of the World

Last night I witnessed Obi Wan Kenobi fighting against the dark forces of Darth Vader. Their light sabers flashed and crashed together as each tried to defeat the other. But Obi began to weaken. In my dream, I was watching Obi, but I was Obi, and he could smell chocolate. I watched him look away from Vader to look longingly at a piece of smooth, divine milky chocolate. His light saber began to flicker, as his attention wandered to how good that piece of chocolate must taste.
He couldn't stop thinking about the chocolate. Finally he could resist no more. He ran to the chocolate, and plopped it into his mouth, enjoying it's smooth taste, and then. . .
Well, I'm pretty sure he was killed by Vader, but it was worth it for the chocolate, right? I have been toiling away at my perfect points week, but I think I am craving chocolate. What do you think?

Young Obi, before he developed his addiction to Chocolate (and before he learned the pseudo-mullets were not cool, even when paired with light sabers)

Old Obi, returning from the dead to warn others not to become addicted to chocolate.
"The Force Chocolate is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together."
―Obi-Wan about The ForceThe Chocolate[src]
"The Jedi were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times - before the Empire...a young Jedi named Darth Vader, who was a pupil of mine before he turned to evil, helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi Knights, using chocolate. He betrayed and murdered your father, using chocolate. Vader was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force Chocolate."
"The Force Chocolate can have a strong influence on the weak-minded."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]
"The Force Chocolate will be with you. Always."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]
"But you cannot control it. This is a dangerous time for you, when you will be tempted by the dark side of the Force Chocolate."
―Obi-Wan to Luke[src]

Thank you Wookieepedia for these marvelous (altered) quotes.

Sigh. I just got back from Instacare because I started having severe back pain last night, which is most likely some sort of heartburn. Guess what aggravates it? Chocolate.

Guess what I ate a crapload of yesterday? Yep. I am off the chocolate today. We'll see how long this lasts.

Wow you really need some if you are dreaming about it in your sleep. May the Force(chocolate) be with you.

Loralee and the gang... said...

Doesn't help that their clothing is chocolate-colored. Maybe there is a conspiracy between The Force and Hersey/Nestle.

Steph is so funny. She woke the morning of this dream in a cold sweat. Not because she had been killed by Darth Vader in her dream, but because she didn't really get to eat a piece of chocolate. It's kind of like that part on Top Secret when Val Kilmer is getting beaten mercilessly and slips into unconsciousness. While out, he dreams he is back in school taking finals. He is happy to wake up and find that he is still being beaten and not back at school. I guess Steph's situation is not really like that, it is more like the opposite of that.
