Slice - Family Movie Night

It's MARCH! That means I'm going to try to post as many little "slices of my life" as I can. The goal is every day in March. I've managed that for the past two years... let's see how this month goes!

Every once in a while, a memory from my teen years pops up. Recently, I had a hankering to watch Bill & Ted again. I looked in stores, I looked on Netflix, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

Duh. It took a librarian friend of mine to poke me and say, "How about the library?" Yep - they had it.

So of COURSE I had to inflict the movie on my family! I've had my younger son watch a few movies I remembered fondly from childhood that were seriously disappointing. I guess I'd blocked out just how slowly paced movies from the 80s were (I'm looking at YOU "Neverending Story").

It was a huge success. The humor was perfect for my nine year old. His giggles filled me with glee. The older one was a bit more skeptical, but even he was infected with the silliness and fun of the movie. I was excited to find myself laughing right along with them. Keanu looked so YOUNG! The 80s clothes and hairstyles were delightful.

I guess sometimes you CAN go back again...

I’m participating in a writing community at Two Writing Teachers. We write about a little "slice of our life" each Tuesday. In March - we attempt to write a slice EVERY day! Head over to their blog for the link up.

If you stop by and have written your own slice, please leave the link in the comments so I can easily find your post! With so many people slicing, it can be very hard to find your piece to visit. s
