My neighbor very generously lent us her copy of the movie ET. I have always hated this movie. I hated it as a kid when I went to see it in the theater. I have a vague recollection of having to go see it because my sister wanted to. But that could be wrong. I hated it this summer when a friend lent her copy to my kids because they LOVED it! (eek) I was not crushed when our reliable old VCR died so we couldn't borrow that copy anymore. How sad I was to realize that the neighbors had it...sigh....on DVD.
I just find the whole thing really creepy. He looks squishy. He has no hair. Kind of reminds me of a hot dog. A squishy wrinkly yucky hot dog, with gross eyes, a freakishly skinny and long neck and it talks! Yuck! It's chest lights up and it's fingers. And they are all hugging on it like it is a sweet little teddy bear. It just gives me the willies! (Is that a word.)
So, I got to spend some uninterrupted time reading my Bible today while my preschoolers were mesmerized by a hotdogish alien......did I mention, YUCK?
