LilZ loves himself some cheesey horror flicks. Lately, his obsession is with the Final Destination movies, since a new one has just been released (or is about to be, I can’t keep up). He has watched the first two several times and has seen the trailer for the third one so often there is really no need to see the movie anymore. He has decided that he is going to write the FOURTH installment himself (it stars several sets of triplets, if you’re wondering) and he has been trying to come up with really ridiculous ways to die so he can add them to his movie. He and MrZ were trading ideas last night while I was doing laundry:
“…he’s running a race around the track and gets impaled by a javelin”
“…she goes to blow-dry her hair and flames shoot out the dryer and fry her brain.”
“…they are filling up their drinks at the soda machine and it won’t stop and they drown in Mr. Pibb.”
And other such realistic scenarios.
I made some blueberry muffins for breakfast this morning (I know! I’m amazing! All this and looks too!) and I put some in LilZ’s lunchbox along with this note:
“Your challenge for today: Death by Blueberry Muffins. Love, Mom”
Update from 2020: Reading this brought me so much joy because Eliah is still OBSESSED with horror movies. He watches crazy foreign horror flicks. He orders special art prints dedicated to his favorite. He listens to podcasts…He even has an instagram account dedicated to the obsession. He just introduced Nyoka to the movies this year during the pandemic.
