This new heart of mine
goes from zero to love in no time.
They made a mistake at the toy factory...

I have a space cadet moment to share.  Truly a gem.

Last Friday was Alex's sixteenth birthday party, so he took couple of his friends (Six, to be more exact.  And I was invited!  It makes me happy.)  to dinner at Ron of Japan.  His parents drove us there, and in the car on the way there, we were for some unremembered reason discussing the Indiana Jones movies.  Hilary said that she had only ever seen part of one of them – I'm not sure which movie it's from, but it's the scene where Indiana Jones is walking down a tunnel and the floor is covered with bugs (he had that little Indian kid with him, I think.)  I said something like, "Was that the movie with the monkey brains and the hearts getting torn out of people's chests?"

Hilary cringed and said she didn't know, because they were too gross for her to watch.

Then, and only then, for the first time in my life, I realized that they were kinda gross movies.  Alex turned to me and said, "Ya think?"

I feel so stupid!  'Cuz they really are disgusting movies, but it's never bothered me.  I've always just closed my eyes during the nasty parts.  Also, I think the first time I saw and Indiana Jones movie, I was eight?  Some age like that.  I've seen all of them – even the young Indiana Jones movies, and they weren't that great – and it's never really bothered me before.

I think the movie Ry was talking about is hte one where the guy gets crushed under the grinding stone, but I'm not entirely sure.
