The Jedi Mind Trick wouldn't have helped, either

So earlier this afternoon I'm crossing the picturesque Hawthorne Bridge over the picturesque Willamette River in the middle of picturesque Portland (by the way, I'm liking the word "picturesque") when I see a family walking near me. The kid at the front of their group wields a light saber.

AND WE ALL SMILE AND CHUCKLE AND GO ON.
