Weeping Angels

Don't blink



A few weeks ago Jordan ordered the most recent season of “Doctor Who” on Blu-ray and we’ve been slowly re-watching all the episodes with the kids.  Watching “Doctor Who” is one of our favorite past times and for the first year of our marriage, Jordan and I watched every season of Doctor Who with the kids starting when the show started back up with Christopher Eccleston.  Talk about some family bonding.  [wink]  The show is known for having some pretty scary monsters, at least for younger viewers are concerned.  Quite possibly the most intimidating” monster” Jaden & Fisher have encountered while watching Doctor Who has to be the Weeping Angels.

It’s fantastic stuff.  The angles can only move when you’re not looking at them so half the time you turn around to find yourself nose to nose with an angel like this one.  The kids make sure to have plenty of pillows to hide behind when we sit down to watch.  [wink]  (The angels even made them reconsider yard gnomes and lawn jockeys…what are they doing while everyone is asleep?)

Earlier in the week the Weeping Angels showed up in one of the episodes we were watching.  It’s been a while since we’ve seen them and I must say that I was glad to see them back.  The kids?  Not so much.  It’s kind of a love/hate relationship for them.  Almost like watching a train wreck.  They don’t want to watch, but they can’t look away.

The next evening we went out to eat with Jordan’s parents.  I ended up sitting between Jordan and his dad while Fisher ended up sitting between Jaden and Jordan’s mom.  I commented on the fact that I was the creaming filling in a man sandwich.  (Pretty original, I know.  Fisher then remark, with much disgust, that he was the filling in a girl sandwich…ew!  He was so appalled by the realization that I asked him what was scarier, monsters on Doctor Who or a girl sandwich.  His response?  A girl sandwich!!

[laugh]  Well, let’s just hope that Doctor Who never has to battle a girl sandwich.  It may be Fisher’s undoing.
