Ten Year Olds Are the Best Year Olds

 5-11-2008 073

This morning I kept leaping into the living room as my 10 year olds were getting ready for school. I was wearing my floppy rain hat, humming the first few notes of the theme song for Indiana Jones, and making a whip noise with my mouth. Whoopersh! Whoopersh!

They loved it.

Too bad they can’t make it the entire way through Raiders of the Lost Ark. We get to the opening scene where Indy finds the corpse impaled on the spike booby trap and they turn to quivering jelly.

“Turn it off, turn it off. Oh, my! Oh, no!”

That’s okay. One day they will be all grown up and when I leap into the room and make whipping noises they will just sigh and roll their eyes.

    I don’t know about this new one coming soon to a theatre near you. Geratric Indy doesn’t quite cut the muster, does it? Perhaps it’ll be on DVD so all the rest of us Gerries can watch it from the comfort of home.

    Saw it over the weekend with Holly. Harrison Ford’s age wasn’t a problem for me, but the script seemed particularly flat and uninspired (especially his lines, most of his jokes).

    Ah, well. I’m sure it’ll be on DVD before you know it.
