This weekend Kiefer and I introduced Boo and Radley to Spaceballs.
It was educational movie for them. They learned about the dangers of pollution, conspiracy theories, and that people who steal end up on the Planet of the Apes.
Here’s what else we learned:
- You can sneak attack your enemy by jamming radars with…jam.
- Druid princesses don’t look Druish.
- Light speed is too slow.
- Always wear your seatbeat when going ludicrous speed.
And the most important lesson that I learned was…I’m old.
How did I come to this realization? When Boo and Radley didn’t understand the significance of the name “Colonel Sanders.”
It was weird to hear their frame of reference.
Boo: This scene is just like Star Wars!
Radley: Yeah! The one with Jar Jar Binks.
Me: ::head shaking:: I’m going to pretend I didn’t hear that.
Right now I’m taking comfort in the fact that…I may be old, but at least Kiefer is older.
