It's true. We love movies and TV at my house. I come from a looong line of entertainment junkies--unlike my hubby, who is lucky he even knows what Leave it to Beaver though he's probably never seen the show. How come Christmas brings out that tendency? What is it about the season that makes me want to watch old movies and pull out the old records?
It must be the season of traditions and rituals.
My kids have been making their way through the Bob Hope and Bing Crosby "Road to..." movies. While I sat and watched Road to Morocco with my kids and mother-in-law, I wondered if I shouldn't have screened it first! About two thirds of the way in, Bob Hope is reading a book, How to Make Love in Six Lessons [or something like that]. And when interrupted he comments, as is typical of those movies, to the audience about how it was just getting good!
Well, it's been a while since I watched the movie, and I don't remember that bit making an impression on me as a kid--Thanks mom and dad for sheltering me--but I did laugh then think, Oh Gosh! What does my mother-in-law think?! That I'm letting my 9 and 10 year old watch this old movie that is rife with sexual innuendo?
I think it was subtle enough to go over the kids' heads. :D If not, I suppose they'll be asking about it soon enough, anyway. :P Ugh! Where do the years go?!
From Christmas to traditions to kids... this post was a little scattered.
It's that time of year again. :D
