FIVE people are begging their friend to see The Force Awakens so they can stop talking about it in code.
25-year-old Tom Booker has become the source of growing resentment among his social group for not having seen the space adventure while still expressing interest in doing so ‘soon’.
Friend Martin Bishop said: “The other day he said he had been to the cinema, but then he smiled and said he been to see The Good Dinosaur. By himself, on a Tuesday morning.”
Booker said: “What can I say? Sometimes you’re just in the mood for an animated dinosaur epic.
“This weekend is Star Wars weekend for sure. Although I have got a bit of a stiff neck so I’ll have to see how that goes, if not then next weekend for sure.
“However I am having an eye operation next week which means I can’t stare at bright fast-moving colours for at least a month. I forgot about that.”
However mutual friend Helen Archer said: “I don’t know why everyone’s so worried about ‘spoiling’ Tom. He’s seen the original Star Wars.
“The Force Awakens is just that, again.”
