With what this middle child of mine does and says, I could center this blog around him.
Yesterday he donned his best cheapest three-piece suit and become an expert in the motion picture industry.
While walking around this new city we call home (An aside: Can I really call it “new” if we’ve been here over half a year?), my three children and I saw a movie poster for the soon-to-be-released three-dimensional version of James Cameron’s Titanic.
Frustration overcame me as I pondered aloud as to why there was a need to re-release this film in 3D. It’s not as if it were an action film with swords, lasers, and pointy things flying at the audience. It’s a love story on a boat that sinks.
As my tirade concluded, I ended with, “Why is this being done?”
To which, Jared, my middle child, answered with all his typical brilliant insight, “Because there was money to be made.”
He’s eleven years old, ladies and gentlemen, and he already understands show business.
