Conversation in the car on the way home from school tonight...Will and I were talking about our neighbor who's his age. We'll call him Jimmy. Jimmy is allowed to do things like watch R - rated movies, drink Mountain Dew by the liter and stay up til the cows come home. We all had a "Jimmy" in our circles growing up, right?
Will mentioned that Jimmy ' s seen the movie "Titanic" and is obsessed with it. Will knows the story from the Magic Tree House books and wanted to know why he's not allowed to see it. I said, "first of all, it's too old for you. And you're a pretty sensitive guy, more sensitive than Jimmy. (Yeah Mom, way more sensitive!) I said that it was a sad story and he'd likely cry. I also mentioned that there's a questionable scene. Of course he asked me what, and I told him that there was a love story put in the movie to make it more exciting to viewers. (Anyone my age or a little younger knows about the scene where Jack is drawing a nude Rose, right!)
Then....Will informs me that Jimmy told him that there's a naked lady in the movie. "Ummm.. yes, there is, I confirm." And the best....."How does the naked lady make it more exciting then?? Unless she's running around naked, screaming that she needs to get dressed before getting in the lifeboat??"
That would certainly make it more entertaining. As for the excitement...talk to me in a couple of years.
