My Movie Memory

The Times Union asked people to send in their favorite movie memories for an upcoming story. My favorite is the time I took Alex to see “Rocketeer” when he was three-years-old. At one point, he crawled out of his seat and up into my lap to watch the movie. It was a one of those great father-son moments I’ll never forget —especially the part where he started peeing. He was so engrossed in the movie he neglected to tell me he had to hit the bathroom and at one point just let loose. Since the kid was was just recently out of diapers, I had brought extra pants and underwear for him. I did not have extra pants and underwear for me, and left the theater with a broad wet stain on the front of my khaki pants.

A father’s love manifests itself in many ways, so the next time you see someone who looks like he wet his pants, just remember that you may really be witnessing a father’s love. Well, maybe there’s a better way to explain that, but you get the idea.

  1. I’d just like to quote the well known Senator from Massachusetts

    “Dad, I’m in some trouble. There’s been an accident and you’re going to hear all sorts of things about me from now on. Terrible things. “

  2. I’m thinkin’ it might be a fun idea to have Alex & his friends be guest bloggers for a week…. Perhaps with a designated theme for each day’s post…?

  3. Interesting. If I can’t pull that together maybe Alex and Zack can take it for a week this summer. It would be like letting them cook dinner —without the mess. Or, here you go: I can write them myself and put their names on it. THAT would be funny!
