I suspect that braver, bolder you would have been confronted by a second "I just don't understand that at all" response... But yeah, I too, would like to be a braver, bolder me, but that person is constantly on l'escalier ;)

Exactly! How do we get them off the damn thing?
Well, I tried luring mine with bacon, but that didn't work... The best I've managed is sometimes, mine runs the wrong way down it, and almost gets to the bottom, where I can feel it just tingling at the edge of "This is the right moment NOW NOW NOW IS IT TIME???" before realising that, wait a minute, I really need to rearrange what I was about to say because wow that could be taken the wrong way, or could it? I think so, but maybe... And by then, of course, I'm halfway up again.
She doesn't understand, but she knows it's the truth, just not telling the truth to herself.
I don't know if that's better or worse, frankly!
I checked the costume box and I'm certain I haven't.
Sometimes I forget that my online and work communities are sooo not representative of the world at large. And then I get sad.
This post made me happy :) Doesn't matter that you didn't say it out loud, she'd never get it anyway. It's enough for me that people out there are thinking the right stuff. (My friendlist's pet hate is the 'bisexual = hyper-sexual' one).
Also, I must find someone who is into Batgirl. Roow.
Wait, aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper? :P
(Addendum: ...assuming all stormtroopers are, what, 6'2" minimum?)
Yep, I would be... 1 inch too short. (WHO TOLD YOU THAT, fnar, etc)
Hang on... Google skills to the rescue... Jango Fett was, apparently, 1.83 m tall (i.e. 6 foot). So, considering that the initial stormtroopers were all clones of him...
AREN'T YOU A LITTLE TALL FOR A STORMTROOPER??? *glares accusingly*
I believe I'm (or was) 186cm. Which means we need to look at the tolerances built into the cloning program, and acceptable biological variation based on growth process and environment. As far as I'm concerned, if I can squeeze into the suit it's Partytime baby, yeah!
I couldn't believe Temuera Morrison is only 6 foot, so I looked it up. He's 5'7". That doesn't help us AT ALL.

No no, please, carry on. I live in patient anticipation of a Stormtrooper height chart.
Ah! No, see, I found myself on one of the many, many SW Wiki sites. Apparently, Jango Fett was definitely 6 foot tall, even though the same cannot be said for the man playing him.
Oooh, although, the idea of being able to control the phoneotype of a fixed genotype is intriguing. Purely on the level of height and build - make all troopers the same height and weight, make scouts slightly shorter and slightly lighter build, make TIE pilots shorter still, and make Emperor's Guard as tall and burly as you can get 'em, because, well, intimidating guards in featureless red robes with Cylonesque helmets should really have that extra edge too. s'not classy, otherwise ;)
Can we be your train buddies
If you count "reading my flist on my mobile", then you already are my train buddies.
On the other hand, maybe this incident will stick in her memory, and over time she'll question her assumptions because her nice train buddy seemed to have such a different take on things. Just by saying what you did, you cracked the door... Who knows what will get in?
I hope so. Must maintain optimism!
