The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky


As always, Periwinkle woke up early that day because she was so excited that Stinky was coming for an Adventure.  She hoped he liked what she had planned.

With a WOOOSH Stinky tumbled out of the Teleportation Tunnel and ran to Periwinkle.  Suddenly he stopped and started Meowing Out Loud.  Periwinkle did not look happy.  "Periwinkle, what are you wearing?   You look so mean cute" he said.  With a slightly perturbed tone in her voice, she said "I'm just getting in the mood for today's Adventure"  Stinky wondered what they could possibly be doing.
"I fixed my furs like Princess Leia from Star Wars,"  Stinky still didn't have any idea what the plan was.  Periwinkle told him it was May 4th.  Still confused, Stinky asked what the date had to do with anything.
"May the Fourth be with you"  she replied.   Suddenly, he realized it was Star Wars Day!

The two spent some time sharing whisker kisses and paw pats and then Periwinkle started telling Stinky about Star Wars Day.  While we are so glad that this day exists, its creation was a fluke. In 2005, a German News TV channel N24 interview erroneously translated this famous Star Wars quote. In German, "May the force be with you", was incorrectly interpreted as "We are with you on May 4th". We do believe, that if this error had not occurred, someone, somewhere would have created this day.

"Let's hop back into the Teleportation Tunnel and head out to meet some Star Wars characters," said Periwinkle.  They tumbled out at the Star Wars Galaxy Edge.

"I really like R2D2 and C3PO,"  said Stinky and immediately they spotted them.

A little while later, they spotted C3PO and R2D2 along with Luke and Princess Lei and ran over to look out at the galaxy with them.

"Whoa.....look at those lightsabers.  Do you think we can get one to take home?" asked Stinky.  Periwinkle said she was pretty sure they would not be able to bring them in the Teleportation Tunnel but they could go check them out while they were here.

Stinky said he wondered how many Star Wars movies there were and Periwinkle told him there are 9 movies in the main, episodic Skywalker saga, as well as 2 stand-alone installments, or Star Wars Stories, and 1 TV film, making for a total of 12 Star Wars movies.  

Neither Stinky nor Periwinkle had ever watched a Star Wars movie but they were both hoping to meet Baby Yoda.  Both tabbies squealed with delight when they actually got to meet him!

Periwinkle told Stinky that R2D2 actually spoke English at first but then only talked in his cute beeps and whistles.  The original Yoda was almost a monkey too!  The original actor who played Darth Vadar was also banned from all Star Wars movies and sets.  Stinky was impurressed with all the fun facts Periwinkle knew.

Both tabbies were ready for a snack so they headed to the dining area.  "That guy looks friendly, let's see if we can sit with him," said Stinky.  

Soon it was time to head back to Periwinkle's house.  The two held paws and got back into the Teleportation Tunnel and headed to her house.  They spent a while visiting with Periwinkle's brofur Raz and then sat together and shared whisker kisses and paw pats.  As much as they hated to part, Stinky headed into the Teleportation Tunnel to go home.  As he was leaving he blew her a kiss and she heard him say "May The Fourth Be With You."   She giggled and decided to find a nice sunspot to nap and dream of their next adventure.

Now, that was a really GREAT adventure! What spiffing fun!

Wow, we didn’t even know this place existed; though, we thought these two might do something related to May the 4th today. Those characters are so cool. How fun to get to meet them. We do apologize for Stinky laughing at Periwinkle. Stinky is really happy that Periwinkle lives somewhere with so many fun places to visit. He had no idea she knew so much about Star Wars. As always, he was sorry to see their adventure end. Stinky sends Periwinkle a bajillion whisker kisses, and Sawyer sends the same to Noelle. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet
