2. I got to sit on Darth Vader’s lap once and received a little kiss from him.

3. My cousin and I used to “play” Lost in Space. I always got to “be” Will and Penny.

4. Since I work in the dental field, I once pulled a tooth for my father in our kitchen.

5. I once had a part in a high school play as a floozy.


  1. it's true.....sort of.....It's up to you to figure out which ones are really true! I actually have a follow up picture to the kiss with Darth Vader.....

  2. In high school Karen was voted “Most Likely to Break Darth Vader’s Heart.” He may have taken a different path in life but for Karen stomping on his emotions like they were nothing more than android excrement. As he lay distraught and emotionally damaged Karen told him she could not be with a being that had such poor dental work and had a lightsaber obsession, no matter how well he could dance disco. Only she knew Darth Vader was actually a good Italian boy from a local neighborhood whose original name was Vadaroni.
