We were wrong for laughing at the Star Wars kid, and the guy who was reduced to tears by a double rainbow. Double light sabers and double rainbows are, in fact, as cool as they made them out to be.
We shamefully laughed at them, when we should have been swinging and weeping with them. And deep inside we knew that. We understood their passion but like a pimple-faced 15-year-old we bent to the pressure and applied ridicule.
I’d be proud to cry at a sufficiently awesome double rainbow, and if someone laughs at me I’ll slay him with a double-sided light saber-mop-handle thingy.
The next time you see this happening, grab a mop handle and help the one who’s enjoying the rainbow–not the one laughing at him. ::
