An excerpt from...

"Haven't you ever dressed yourself?"
"Of course not!"

So I took a step back into my childhood recently and watched The Secret Garden on tv. I remember hating Mary for being such a spoilt brat but being oh-so-jealous that she was allowed to run around that enormous house. I wanted my own secret passageways, ivory elephants and ornate keys. Such fantasies.

Watching it in my 25-year-old being, I felt nostalgic. I still loved the movie for the same reasons I did when I was 7. Only this time I appreciated other subtle cues and details. Some things are better the second time around.

"I hate the way you talk about dying."
"Everyone thinks I'm going to die."
"If everyone thought that about me, I still wouldn't do it."
