I was having a drink in a local cantina frequented by Clone Troopers, when I spotted DL 156. I heard he had just returned from a mission on Dantooine, a farming world.

“What the matter? Why the hangdog look?” I asked
“I met a farm girl on Dantooine.” DL 156 replied, and then sighed.
“That sounds like good news. Did she not like you or spurn your advanced?” I inquired
“Not at all. She seemed great. We would go on long walks and just talk. Every spare minute I had in the last two months I spent with her. We were even talking of marriage after my tour was up.” DL 156 told me.
“Uh, you know our tours are never up? We were made for this job. But never mind all that, what happened to make you look so forlorn?”
“Well” DL 156 started, “On my way back to Coruscant, she sent me a holo message. She said our time together was great, but she was going to marry the local Tractor salesman. He would be able to give here a better life, she said.”
DL 156 shoulders slumped as he handed me the data pad.
I looked incredulously at DL 156 and said “So what you are telling me is you are sad because you got a John Deere letter?”
