Happy Anniversary, Ron Mitchell TK-2769

Happy Anniversary, Ronnie! Thank you for being my knight in shining white armor for the last 17 years. When I slipped over to the darkest of the dark sides, you were there to pull me back, and you’ve always supported my decisions and never judged me, whether I wanted to be a poet, raise an army of feral cats or dye my hair black. You are the sexiest stormtrooper who ever walked this side of the galaxy and, more importantly, the most honest, caring, hardworking, funny and real person I know. You make me want to be a better person and find the true Force inside myself, instead of zooming across the universe in vain. These are just a few reasons why I love you so much, because if I shared them all I would never finish telling you until the day I die.
