Geeky Discourse

I had a very geeky conversation with the strangest of people last night. I had gone to pick up my oldest lad from Scouts and was standing speaking to him, one of the Scout leaders, and the Scout leader’s daughter. The Scout leader is a tiny wee wifie in her late fifties (I think – it’s difficult to tell).

Anyway, the daughter had been referring to $oldestLad and his friend as “Slave 1” and “Slave 2”. Scout Leader wifie piped in with “Boba Fett’s ship was called Slave-1”. I was kinda taken aback and said “oooo good pop-culture reference. But technically it was Jango Fett’s ship first.” To which she replied, “Well, yeah but he’s allowed to give it to his son.” To which I replied “But it’s not technically his son because he’s a clone.”

Scout Leader wifie replied “Not necessarily – he was completely unaltered so he could be his son.”

Out-geeked by a scout leader. I feel shame.
