There have been a lot of cheesy movies made in my lifetime. Some of them are so ridiculous that the aftereffects of watching the movie linger long after they need to. Every single time I climb the creaky stairs into my attic, I bat cobwebs away and think that one day, a giant spider is going to leap out at me. Seriously. I blame the scene in the 1990 movie Arachnophobia where they finally find the killer spider in the barn. I have exposed beams in my attic and well, it is just a bit creepy.
Movies have a way of sticking around with you long after you have seen them. I often use movie quotes, and while spiders don’t bother me that much, snakes do. We were going to our car one day, and my oldest went all the way down the path and got to the car. The next thing I know, my little one is screaming. It reminded me of this:
Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?
Every single time I have to face something like that and be brave, I hear this soundtrack:
Thank you John Williams for making music I can hum in my head as I go into my attic or face giant snakes on the path to my car.
“I don’t mind doing interviews. I don’t mind answering thoughtful questions. But I’m not thrilled about answering questions like, ‘If you were being mugged, and you had a lightsaber in one pocket and a whip in the other, which would you use?’ ” ~Harrison Ford
P.S. I would like to know the answer to this.
