you’ll think about The Shining differently in just a moment

I wouldn’t read this if you’re the type of person who says, “I’ve just lost my appetite.” I’ve never been one of those people. I can eat food during anything. I know, surprising right? I bet you thought I was such a delicate flower, a unique snowflake with a sensitive tummy who refers to her stomach as her “tummy.” I ate popcorn while watching SAW and Junior Mints the first time I watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Anyway I was talking to my friend Rachel about this whole second baby planning and I told her about the IUD still corking up my lady business. Then I realized that I probably wouldn’t get pregnant right away since I have to start ovulating. Isn’t that how babies are made? Did anyone take sex education in seventh grade? Do you still have the notes in your trapper keeper with the picture of Zach from Saved by the Bell taped on the front?

And then I was terrified because I haven’t had my period in almost a year. What if my period returns and it’s like that scene in The Shining when all the blood is coming through the elevators?

I thought about ending it with the video of that scene, but I’ll replace that image with an happier view:

    What a lovely movie preview! LOL…I actually remember seeing the preview for the shining when I was very little and we’d gone out to the movies. My mother was horrified and put her hands over my eyes and ears, but not before I saw all the blood come out of the elevator and make all the furniture float away. I have no idea what movie we were there to see, but THAT image? I STILL remember vividly. I’m glad that they now have appropriate previews when they play kids movies and not just any upcoming movie previews…of course with that feel good Shining movie preview…I want to watch it all over again!

    One time after the kids were asleep Aaron and I snuggled up to watch the Shining, and about half way through I heard a squeak, and turned around to find four year old Jonas wide eyed, sitting on the stairs, and pale as a ghost. He had been watching for who knows how long!

    He’s still scared of big wheels.

  4. In my line of work I usually am eating lunch while I’m looking at crime scene photos… I’ve been to an autopsy, but can’t quite get to the point where I can eat my sandwich while actually *in* the room. But my colleagues look at me and cringe… to me, no big deal. I don’t understand the squeamish, I guess. With my luck, Gemma will faint at the sight of blood.
