So last night was movie night, as it is every Friday night. We watched ‘The Secret of NIMH’.
Kris and I both loved this book and movie as kids, so we were excited to share it with the boys. However, we did remember that it got a little scary at times. We were at the part where Justin (good guy) and Jenner (very bad guy, trying to kill Nicodemus) were having their sword fight. It was getting pretty intense, and we were watching the boys, making sure they were ok. They were wide-eyed, mesmerized. (It’s important at this point in my story to remind you that Jenner was a VERY BAD RAT, the villain of the story, an all around a-hole) Anyway, the scene ends with Jenner being stabbed in the stomach by Justin, and then fatally wounded by a knife thrown by another rat. (yes this movie is rated G, but keep in mind it was 1982.)
As Jenner collapses, Cooper deadpans – “Now THAT’S Karma”.
