Not to flash forward the story, or to pander to Disney advertising, but this has been one Monsters (University) filled week. Sabrina (10) has been counting down to this film since, perhaps, birth. For the past year every screening we have attended has been chump change, only second to the eventual question, "When's the new Monsters movie coming out?" Thanks to brilliant marketing on Pixar's part, which begins releasing 'hype' clips as soon as the first CG snippet is off the cutting room floor (years in advance of it's actual release). But I digress, today is Less Words Wednesday, so let's briefly sum up this week.
The 'dog toys' actually got fought over, and were an extra big hit for their squeakers (kids, right?) Lunchtime with 10/11 year-olds is certainly an interesting experience. No sooner had my bum hit the bench to eat than a precocious 11 year old trounced up to me, "Excuse me. I just wanted to let you know Chicken Nuggets are made from pink goo. My sister learned it in High School." I'm not sure if she was implicating I was younger than, or equal in age to her sister, and assert her sister's intellect, but it was ironic in contrast to the barrage of "Are you Sabrina's mother?" questions I received. I know there's some confusion here on the blog at times, so I'll clarify again, for those who are curious; I'm Sabrina's Aunt :)
