Over the Christmas break, the Bensons in true geek fashion, undertook a marathon of watching the entire Star Wars movies, including the cartoons. We did this in part, because Tex, Piano Man, and Flash are big Star Wars Fans; also as a fun way to remember Mike, who was a Star Wars geek. Hong Mei loves to watch movies or TV and she identifies with either the villain or the dominant male hero. Jie Jie and I hoped she would instead want to be Princess Leia or Padme Amidala. Instead, in typical Hong Mei fashion, she became a big fan of Darth Vader.
At one point engrossed in the power of Darth Vader,
she asked me, “When do I get the force?”
“I guess when women get the Priesthood”
“Good, cause I want to do this ( demonstrates with her hand) to Flash”.
And that is why, dear reader, women do not have the Priesthood.
