So the kid and I were watching the last part of John Carpenter's 'The Thing' on TV today--she LOVES horror & sci-fi flicks and isn't afraid of anything--and were watching the part where the monster kind of erupts into a gross conglomeration of every creature it's absorbed.
a skinned dog's head erupts from inside the monster and turns it's
horrifying, slavering jaws towards the camera, she turns to me and says
offhandedly, "If I had a dog, I wouldn't keep him in my stomach. I'd
put him on a leash and take him for walks!"
I just stared at her,
unable to come up with anything other than, "Uh...me, too.". The kid
handles horror movies MUCH better than I ever did.
