For the first 2 hours of fully functional central air conditioning in our house, I sat and watched The BLOB. Like a blob, I sat. Crap piled high around me, men still working, lots of commotion.
That movie scared me to death in jr. high. I watched it while babysitting. Pretty stupid huh? It may have been the night I called my Mom and told her I was afraid and she came over and sat with me. I doubt I told her what I had watched. So this is the first time since then I had seen the movie. Part of it was hysterically funny. My fav part was the guy who was unable to decide which hat to wear when both fire siren and air raid sirens were blasting.
do you remember air raid sirens? and kneeling in the hallway covering your head… rows of kids in front of the lockers. or crouched under your desk. after closing the windows and black out shades. what was all that about? did we really think it was gonna stop something? did the govt think we would be safer? or feel safer? cuz guess what….. it didnt work. as a kid it scared the crap out of us. for years. every kid knew where there was an air raid shelter. do you now? i have no idea where to find one within 500 miles of me. not that they dont exist, its just that i dont know where they are.
ok, so i watched the blob.
enjoyed my tub
and did a whole bunch of other stuff that isnt worth mentioning. not that the blob was either. lol
