I picked up a movie for the kids Friday–it was an obscure title from almost forty years ago called The Incredible Mr. Limpet. Wow–was it that long ago? It was a nice flick about a man who falls into the ocean and becomes an animated fish–you know, the kind of thing that happens every day in real life, right? I first saw it when I was four, so I thought the kids would like it. Drew asked a lot of questions, so I knew he liked it. Alyssa said it was weird and it would never happen in real life, but she liked it.

One odd thing–I don’t think the two female roles in the movie would ever pass in today’s society–they’re both “stay at home and wait for the man to get things done” roles (at least the Ladyfishg role is). It’s funny to see how things were taken for granted then.
