Confession – I’ve never seen Star Wars

I won’t ruin Star Wars for you. In fact, I am so committed to not ruining it, that I have never seen any of the Star Wars movies.

When people hear this, some have a visceral reaction. To some, that basically comes across like I’ve said I’ve never had a pizza, drank a coke, laughed, or experienced any type of joy ever. “WHAT? You’ve never seen Star Wars? How are you alive?” I’ve had various friends over the years hear that, and say “we need to watch them.” The reason why I haven’t seen Star Wars is not about a lack of access. I’m gainfully employed. I could see them. I’m just not interested.
