Wookie Errors and Jumanji

Have you ever made a mistake, only to hear coming from an onlooker's mouth the words, "Rookie error?" Now imagine if you made a mistake a hundred times worse? What would the onlooker say then? Chances are they would say, "Wookie Error!"
Wookie errors take their name from the hairy creatures from star wars that are known for their incredible strength and touchy temperament. A wookie error is like a rookie error, but worse; it usually involves accidentally hurting someone or something. For example: You go to put your arm around someone and you jab their eye with your elbow. Wookie Error!
Or how about the time the Stake President, after renewing someone's recommend, told them to go rip up the old one into 50 pieces and the person obediently did, only to find out they had shredded their son's recommend? Wookie error!
We all make wookie errors now and then. We accidentally knock down displays at the grocery store. We bash in our friend's car door while backing out the van. We pull out favorite plants thinking they are weeds. Wookie errors happen. Just try not to let them happen all the time.
Feel free to share a wookie error from your life.

In other news, we have discovered the origin of the swine flu. We were watching Jumanji and we observed that at the end of the movie two girls found the game. They must have opened it and started to play. Herein lies the explanation of the swine flu. One of the girls must have rolled the dice and read this message:

"Looks like you've rolled
the number two.
Have lots of fun
With the swine flu."

The swine flu will go away when those two girls finish playing the game... which we hope happens soon. I mean, according to the movie, they've been playing since the nineties. Hurry up already


  1. well, this isn't MY wookie error, but let's just say it happens hypothetically. Wookie error= introducing your friend's girlfriend as his fiance.hmmm... how awkward would that be?

  2. that would be so awkward! I'm glad I've never done that... oh wait.

  3. bahaha you really did discover the origin of the swine flu! Also, just last night I was simply attempting to clean off the dinner table. Something went terribly wrong when I (for whatever reason) dropped the bowl I was holding which in turn knocked over two glasses of water and upturned a huge bowl of rice; all of which resulted in one of the loudest clattering noises this world has ever experienced... what a mess.

  4. Sadly enough...I'm almost positive i've never made a wookie error. I'm still at rookie. Also, it's a good thing there was a camera following that board game or we would never have known the origin of that disease! Think of all the knowledge we'd be missing without great documentaries like Jumanji and National Treasure :)

  5. HAHAHA this had me laughing so hard! love it!!!

  6. I just remembered I promised I'd comment every time I visit your blog... another wookie error I once committed in the fifth grade: I believe we were playing tag (or something of the like). I was running, and I went to tag my friend and ended up pushing her to the ground and causing her arm to break :(

  7. Wookie error: Dancing with a guy and he asks, "Doesn't this feel weird to you?" Your response, "Yeah kinda like dancing with my brother." His answer, "I was talking about our hands..." Yikes.

  8. You told me I had to comment on this one so the good anonymous friend that I am I am going to-this better show up as anonymous! (let me add this is way worse than ordering tacobell items at del taco!)
    So lets just say this may or may not have happened to ...someone.
    So 'someone' texted 'someone else' 'something'. 'something' went something to the effect of 'oh 'this someone' is [cool] i [like] them winky face'. 'Someone' accidentally texted the text to 'this someone' instead of 'someone else'. and yes 'someone' was embarrassed when she found out which was when 'this someone' texted back instead of 'someone else'.(Names and specifics where changed to protect the identity and what little pride 'someone' may have left.)

  9. Alyssa..... I mean, random anonymous friend, if I could understand that story through all the censored jargon I would probably think it was very embarrassing! Thanks for commenting! Keep it up!
