Some girl: …although i did see Dr. Strangelove and Dr. Zhivago before i ever saw Disney

Me: I still haven’t seen Dr. Strangelove or Dr. Zhivago. I’m trying to see all the Disney movies before they put them back in the vault.

Some girl: It’s pretty confusing to have no frame of reference for the cold war when you’re 3

Me: I can relate. I watched Smokey and the Bandit when I was 5, and the references to Coors beer and bootlegging really threw me.

Although even at that age, I knew that driving 1800 miles in 28 hours would be tough. But you know what? The Snowman and the Bandit really worked together and pulled it off.

It taught me about teamwork. It really is an allegory, that movie.
