“When I’m Five Years Old…” Movies Edition

October 15, 2014 | By Brent Almond | DAD STUFF

As I mentioned in my first installment, Jon’s list of things he wants when he turns five is exhaustive and exhausting. In addition to things he wants to be (taller) and have (all manner of toys), there are things he wants to experience. Things that are well above what’s appropriate for his age. He claims he’s not afraid of anything (except for getting shots, going into a darkened room alone, biting spiders and vegetables) ā€” and I’m proud when he’s my brave, little toaster. But I’m not ready for him to be 100% fearless yet. He’s got stuff to learn, limits to experience, dangers to fully comprehend. Like cyborg assassins from the future.

    When I was five, I wanted to watch Airplane (because my parents were watching it). I remember re-enacting the beach love scene with my teddy bear (the running in the surf bit). Mom shooed me out of the room long before I was able to see anything more harmful. ::chuckle::

    I saw John Carpenters “The Thing” when i was like 8 years old. It scared the crap out of me but made me a better person. LET JOHN SEE JURASSIC PARK!
