How To Watch a Scary Movie
This is what a 12 year old looks like when she's been caught watching a scary movie, even if it IS 9:30ish in the morning. A little background information. The Grudge, with Sarah Michelle Geller, was on last night. Liz wanted to watch it, but I am just not into scary movies. Yes, it was regular TV so it was edited big time, but that's just me. Nope. I told her no, she couldn't watch it either, as I just didn't see the sense in terrorizing one's self right before bedtime. Well, all went okay, Liz fell asleep, and I hit my room to watch reruns of L & O. I get up this morning and I can hear her TV on, so I know she's up. I vacuum the living room and swiffer the kitchen floor, and pop into her room to remind her that today is general cleaning day. I expect her to dust, vacuum. and generally straighten up. This is what I found. I about cracked up. She's watching I Know What You Did Last Summer and all you can see is the top of her head and eyes bigger than my coffee cup saucer! Even at 9:30 in the morning, a scary movie is a scary movie. I think vacuuming will be a welcome change of pace, don't you?
