My Intergalactic Teenage Crush

I blame my brother for turning me into a Star Wars geek. In 1977, when the first Star Wars movie was released, like most boys his age, he became obsessed. My obsession wasn’t so much with the Empire as it was with a certain Han Solo played by a young Harrison Ford.

Forget Princess Leia, I would have gladly traded places with Chewbacca just to get closer to my crush, Han. Who cared that I would have had to wear a costume made of yak hair and mohair? Who cared that my voice would have sounded like recordings of walruses, lions, camels, and bears? I would have given anything to be the Wookiee Han Solo saved, the creature who would become his oh-so-lucky sidekick.

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the importance of being yourself. As I spend my days talking about the services offered by Matchmaker Logistics, it’s just like me to see the parallels between our company and Star Wars. Check out this Stars Wars-inspired presentation that explains why you should let our “force” be with you…

P.S. Not familiar with Star Wars? Did you know there is an entire website devoted to explaining the pop culture phenomenon? Naturally, it’s called Wookieepedia.

Happy Monday,
