Friday 5: The Force Which Through the Green Fuse Drives the Flower

When did you last have to force your way into something?

Not into, but our apartment door doesn't properly shut unless you body slam it.

What’s something you’ve recently used physical force on?

See above. Also: hole-punching documents.

What was the last food you had to force down your throat?

I'm a grown-up. I can eat food that I like!

When did you last have to force a smile or a laugh?

I was at an English Debate Club meetup a while ago—months, by this point—and one of the participants who came out with us for beers afterwards turned out to be kind of unpleasant. He did that thing where people hold forth instead of actually having a conversation (twice, even: once in a conversation I could overhear and then again in a conversation with me) and what he held forth on, in addition to not being particularly interesting, did not paint him in a good light. "I'm not homophobic, but..."


The whole thing was so weird that I didn't know what to say, so I just smiled and nodded and then very abruptly left when other people wanted to get falafel.

What are the best and worst things about the Star Wars movies?

The best thing is that some people are really pressed about the leads in The Force Awakens and how they're not all white men. The worst thing would probably be most adult fans. Sorry guys, I just can't get into it. But I will gladly enable young people's passion for the movies, because they can enjoy it without being obnoxious.
