There's a Wookie in my shower

DH mentioned he saw something about Star Wars on the Today show, which I'm almost sure has to do with this. No matter. It was enough. A sound arose from the shower...a gurgling, slightly melodic sound. The gargling had begun.

Something about Star Wars makes my husband want to gargle themes in the shower. I suppose I should be glad he's not making up words to them and singing in the shower instead (not that he has a bad voice). To be fair, his rendition of the Force Theme is wonderful. And his Imperial March is inspiring (in a manner of speaking). But today, after the Force Theme, came something unrecognizable.

"What was that?"

"Han and Leia's Theme. Why, what did you think it was?"

"It sounded a little like the deranged warbling of a peacock in heat."

"Well, at least I got the passion component in there!"

"Ah...."

Some girls' husbands sing like birds. Mine gargles like one.

Thanks for the reminder - I've been thinking of taking DS to that exhibit.

I don't know that I've ever heard the sound of a peacock in heat...

Thank you! I had not heard of that exhibit. Doubtful we'll make it in Chicago, but it will be in 3 other cities after that. It will be either our 10th anniversary trip, or we'll take L for his 4th birthday. We'll just have to see how things go. And you should hear L's rendition of the Imperial March. It is *so* funny!
