We’ve made it to the end of the week, and now it’s time to enjoy one of the greatest rivalries of our time: my beloved Yankees versus the hated Red Sox.
That rivalry should keep me entertained all weekend, but I still have time to join you in the Think Tank tonight.
Speaking of rivalries, is there any greater than sibling rivalry? According to all the posts on my Facebook news feed, today is something called National Sibling Day. As I like to keep the Think Tank topical, I’m going to work that into tonight’s topic.
So grab your Deep Thinking Togas and meet me out at the Think Tank…
This week’s topic: In honor of National Sibling Day, what siblings from film, television, or literature do you most wish you could call your own?
This one really had the Deep Thoughts flowing all day, Modern Philosophers.
Every time I thought I had settled on a famous family to join, another one would pop into my head, and I’d have to ponder on that one for some time. It’s a wonder I got any work done today.
Who wouldn’t want to be a Jedi and have that brother and sister combo to help show you the ropes?
Sure, it would be a drag to have Darth Vader as my father, but could he really be any worse than an Evil Step Mother?
How cool would it be to fight the Empire with my siblings? I’d have my own lightsaber, be a master with a blaster, fly like an ace, and be one with the Force.
I’ve always said that seeing Star Wars is what made me want to be a writer, so it just makes sense that I would want to be a Skywalker.
Could you imagine how powerful a Jedi I’d be after being hidden on Earth and raised in Brooklyn? The Empire wouldn’t know how to handle a Brooklyn Jedi. I’d probably be able to teach Luke and Leia a thing or two.
Dating would be easier as a Skywalker. I’m sure Jedi Knights turned heads in those sexy hooded robes, and I have to assume that the Jedi Mind Trick could somehow counter the mind tricks women always seem to play on dates.
So what about you, Modern Philosophers? Which famous siblings do you wish were yours? Happy Sibling Day. May the Force be with you!
