Sci Fi Hopes Dashed

I was working in my home office the other day when a loud crash came from the living room. I had a bad feeling about this. I called out to my daughter to ask if she was alright.

"Everything's perfectly alright now. We're fine. We're all fine here, now. Thank you......How are you?"

Instantly recognizing this as a classic Star Wars reference, I leaped to my feet and spoke the appropriate response. "We're sending a squad up".

"Uh...what?", the kiddo replied.

"Aren't you a little short to be a Stormtrooper?" I asked.

"Dad, what are you talking about?", she replied, obviously not understanding that I was attempting to further the Star Wars banter.

"That thing you said. It was from Star Wars. I'm just glad you like it now. You always told me you thought it was boring".

"No, that was from Phineas and Ferb. Star Wars is boring".
