On “The Force Awakens” and Rational/Irrational Excitement

Let’s mark this day,  April 16, 2015, as the day we lost of collective cool. We made it through the first teaser able to reserve some level of composure through our excitement when the falcon flew up into our screens as the memories of prequels past still haunt our Star Wars love …BUT DAMN.

This one’s got us.

Our exclamations:

“THE MUSIC”

“I’m grinning like the Cheshire cat!”

“I’m trying to remain cool, there is no cool!”

“My sister has it!!!”

“THE MUSIC. They had me at the music. Yup. Done. Sold”

And now GIFs which we’ve borrowed from The Verge (thanks, The Verge)

We don’t even know exactly what this is, but we’re all about this:

Fun Fact: We attended Episode III together when it came out in theatres. Our reactions were massively different than the above exclamations.  It’s a trap?
