Wimpy.

I had a revelation at my sister’s house in Pennsylvania. I was watching the American version of the Japanese horror movie “Pulse” and my little niece came walking into the living room. I told her that she had to go to bed being 7 before she had nightmares [I’m looking out for a kid you know?]. But she looked at me, just looked at me with those huge eyes that all of my sister’s kids seemed to inherit and said to me, that this movie would probably scare me more than it does her.

[Pause]

So I thought about that. I mean at the time me and my little niece went at it [me defending myself and she just laughing and saying “oh Lorna you know it’s true” over and over again] and she won. She won because it’s true. I am a bit of a wimp.

But dammit, I didn’t want a kid to tell me that…jeez.

So that’s my shameful confession for the day. I got played by a 7 year old.

I don’t know why that thought came to my head, but I decided to write it down.
