Topic: We Need to Talk About Kevyn
My 12-year-old daughter Kevyn has taken an interest in horror films over the last several months. Last night, during our usual new-episode-of-The-Walking Dead discussion, she disclosed that she's been watching various Friday the 13th movies on AMC, this being their annual Halloween horror fest and all. But...
I'm sorry. This is difficult to talk about. Please, bear with me. I need to get through it.
So last night she tells me she's chosen a favorite. Our tastes are so much alike in everything else that I assume she's going to say part 3, 4 or 6, which are my own personal favorites. Then she tells me. Her favorite is...
...JASON TAKES MANHATTAN.
And as if that wasn't bad enough, her second favorite? A toss-up between Jason Goes to Hell and Jason X.
My heart is heavy. My spirit, broken. I need you, my HM friends, now more than ever, to help me through this incredibly difficult time. I know it sounds like I'm over-reacting, but I am just a man. If you prick me, do I not bleed? If I mourn, do I not cry? If I am sad, do I not need comfort and support? And more importantly, if I shake it more than once, am I not playing with it?
These are dark times. I don't know how I'm going to get through this. But I can't just give up on her. Damn it, I love her too much!
