Romance vs. the eight-year-old boy

Tonight our family watched Sydney White--a modern version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs--(yes, that is the correct spelling of dwarfs, Mr. Tolkien.)    And I DON'T recommend it for children, but this is not a movie review.  This is a psychological snapshot:  It's the end of the movie.  Sydney has fallen asleep in the library after pulling an all nighter to finish a major paper.  Tyler Prince is searching for her everywhere--she'll be late for her presidential election debate!  At last he finds her.  Her face is so peaceful in sleep.  How will he wake her?  Hmm...
Anderson knows! He shouts it out, "SLAP HER!"

I like that response! We wouldn't want him to be too mushy at his age, right? He'll be a hopeless romantic one of these days.

Edith, I'll have to rent that. BTW Tolkien.

just like a man! i think, at least for now, anderson is safe from skanky prom dresses and sugar cookie perfume.

Jenny said...

Well, that would wake her. When you think about it.

(I laughed out loud raucously, BTW)

(Also this is funny to compare to my moose post where Andrew was finding romance in what scientists poetically call "The Rut")

That should do it! Effective problem solving, Anderson.

Sick! Why would you EVER watch an Amanda Bynes movie?!?! I hate her, I hate her, I hate her!

I'd like to moderate my language. I just think she is a horrible actress. She is always mugging. She can't act naturally to save her life.

We watched this movie on the recommendation of my soon-to-be new brother-in-law. And we appear to have different taste in movies.

You don't get to comment on John Ronald Reuel's spelling of "dwarves" if you don't spell his last name correctly.

Pffft.

So, if I leave a misspelling of a favorite author for three days, Clint will comment on my blog! It was totally worth it.
