I was away in Jamaica for a week with my wife (had an amazing time) but Star Wars must've gotten jealous and followed me.

I was sitting at a pool and the poolside entertainment committee had a trivia contest. One of the categories was movies. So someone chose it and the answer was Darth Vader. I kind of laughed to myself after getting it right and continued on to the next question. Well the entire section were Star Wars quotes and trivia. Suffice to say, to the embarrassment of my wife, I rolled through them all and won the whole contest. I might have lost a little dignity, but won a big bottle of Jamaican Rum!!

Who needs dignity when you have free rum? Congrats on your inner geek paying off. Smile

I actually thought about bringing Gary or a SW figure (some dude on RS did this Wink ) but it didn't pass the divorce test so they stayed home
