Speaking of Animals
Aaron took us to see Disney's Planet Earth the other night.
When the movie was over, he was pumped.
The boys and I were quiet.
Aaron says, "Did you like the movie?"
The boys all mumble..."no."
Aaron is shocked.
Wife says, "Our planet is terrifying. It scares me to death."
Hayden said, "I didn't like it when the elephant died."
Ashton chimes in...sadly..."All the animals kept dying."
Seriously....our kids break down in a normal Disney movie where one animal dies at the end. This movie had an animal die every five minutes. What were we thinking? After about the third break down, I thought, "We just paid good money to torture our children. Pass us the Parents of the Month award."
I was extremely quiet as we walked out of the movie to our vehicle. I'm sure Aaron was thinking, "Why can't my wife just watch a movie for goodness sake. Why am I married to such a weirdo?" I assure Aaron I try to be normal. He knows I do.
In the car, Aaron tried to lift the sad, solemn spirits sitting in the seats. He said..."Ashton, what part of the movie DID you like?"
Ashton sighed and said in his sweet voice...
"I hated all the parts."
I couldn't think of any parts I liked either.
