JawaJuice: Timeshare at the Temple

With our home gone, our brownie business lost, and hardly a credit to our name, Qui Gon and myself did the only thing two self-reliant beings could do.

We see if a friend will let us crash with them.

Qui insisted that Obi Wan would let us stay with him in the Jedi Temple. I was a bit more hesitant. I still have vivid nightmares of the other time we had to stay with him.

“Well, I’m sure we can stay in one of the empty rooms at the temple,” said Qui Gon. I remember there were plenty of empty rooms on the third floor for when we let the frogs out.”

I gave a wary sideways glance to my companion but thought better to ask.

So we hoofed it over to the Jedi Temple. Not much had changed since our last visit. I see Anakin and Padme are still involved in their not so clandestine love tryst. I think everyone knows about those two except those two. …and Obi Wan.

We first sought out Obs, who just happened to be in the meeting room with Mace Windu. It seems someone turned poor master Windu’s head into a Chia-Pet.

Doesn’t look that bad, actually. Unfortunately, he didn’t think so.

“Oh hell no!!! HELLLLLLL NOOOOO! When I get my hands on the fool who did this, I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger that would attempt to poison my pretty, pretty head. And he will know my name is Mace Windu when I lay my vengeance upon thee! What are you laughing at, Kenobi?”

After ol Ben stopped his snickering, he came and gave me a warm hug, which left a nice layer of Cheeto dust on my cowl. He then gazed at the floating poncho and cow bell next to me.

“Oh Jeez. Where did you get the cow force ghost?”

Suddenly something smacked him upside the head.

“Oh, master…is that you? I thought you was a cow. So um…are you guys back to watch the monster truck mud wrestling? They finally found a way to make two big, big, gigantic, big, big trucks wrestle. It’s like wrestling and trucks…together…”

“um…maybe later. Ya see, we’re a little down on our luck at the moment and wondered if we could crash here at the temple for a little while. Qui tells me there are some rooms on the third floor that are free.”
”Third floor? Um…I don’t think so, J.J. They converted most of those rooms so that we can play miniatures. But hey, there’s a free room just down the hall from mine if you two don’t mind sharing?”

“It will have to do. Let’s see it.”

Five minutes later and we were standing before…

“…a closet? You want us to live…in a closet?”

“Well, it is a big walk-in closet, J.J.,” consoled Qui Gon. “We can both fit in here for the time being.”

“Fine…what ever. Send in some cots…and a bucket of sand or two.”

Just then a man from GPS (Galactic Percales Service) walked up to us. “Mr. Q.G. Jinn?”

“I’ll sign for him,” I told the man. “What is it?”

”I got 48 boxes shipped from the Tropic-0 cruse line.”

“Oh wow man…That’s like…all my souvenirs. That will make the place all homey like.”

“Um…I hate to break it to you Q.G., but as you can see, our new living accommodations…AINT GONNA FIT ALL THAT CRAP! I mean, look at all this stuff? Where are we going to put it?”

“Oh, hey, I know…” Obi Wan jumped in. “There’s another closet space on one of the top floors of the temple. Not too many people go up there. You can use that.”

“Sure no one is going to mind?”

”OH no. I never see anyone in there anyway. It’s all good.”

“Well, as long as it doesn’t belong to anyone…”

Vegeta said...

That's actually a good look for Windu.

Black Widow said...

I feel the force wedgies are about to commence

Fluke Starbucker said...

Wow, Yoda looks like that crochety old broad manning that antique booth at the farmer's market.

Not that I've ever been to the antique booth at the farmer's market, or anything.

Looks like you're gonna need a bigger boat, er closet.

Wait, what's yoda doing Trapped in the Closet?

Master Yoda said...

Touch anything while you are here, do not! Very important to me, my collection of Elvis on velvet paintings are - mess them up do not!

Aayla Secura said...

You two are welcome to use my room, for the time being.

And I'm sure Barriss won't mind if you use her room or even part of her healing wing to crash in.

Come to think of it, Erifia would love to see the two of you use her room. Seeing how she's got the biggest room for Jedi Knight.

And there's also Dark Jedi Kriss dark room that's not in use as well.

Dark Jedi Kriss said...

Windu with a cha-pet. LOLOLOLOL!
