Star Wars thought of the day: A long time ago and far far away

Published in Fun

I used to think that  “a long time ago in  a galaxy far, far away” meant :  a really long time ago and really far FAR away.  So long ago and so far away, that when I look into the night sky I like to imagine the light reaching me after millions of years, left the central star of  one of the solar systems in Star Wars at the same time the events portrayed in the movies...  ...actually took place.
