Sleepover, Round 2.

July 25, 2013

It started in the car. I had just picked the girls up from the Schell house and we were making our way back to mine for one last sleepover before I leave Paraguay. K piped up from the backseat about a movie she had watched with her “brudders” recently. A cinematic masterpiece entitled “Monsters of the Beeran” or something to that effect.

I am, by no stretch of imagination, an expert on children’s films and cartoons, so I had absolutely no idea what they were talking about. This frustrated them, but talk they continued. L joined her sister in detailing various scenes from the movie, describing what one guy said to another on the beach and how the bad guy got his head cut off.

I asked them if it had been too scary for them because it all sounded rather violent, and K in an ever matter-of-fact tone, quipped, “It only a little bit scawee. You just have to be brave, Big [Lo].” Wise words from a four-year-old.

Then we passed a billboard with a prominent picture of Johnny Depp, and the girls squealed in excitement, “Monsters of the Beeran!”

If ever I had an epiphany moment, that was it. As it turns out, Monsters of the Beeran translates to none other than Pirates of the Caribbean. I mean, duh.
