Scene: The end of a long, lazy day and Branden and I are trying to get sleepy enough to go to bed. We decide to go with our tried and true method of watching cartoons which usually puts us out like lights. So we start scrolling through our Irish Netflix (don't even bother suggesting things for us to watch if you have the US version as the Irish version will most likely not have it and won't get it for another 5 years) and this is our conversation:
Branden: We could watch X Men again (note: this is the cartoon that started in the early 90's)
Me: But it keeps giving you weird nightmares every time we watch it so we should find something else, maybe something more 'little kid-ish' that's not scary. *I scroll past Thomas the Tank Engine* Except for that! That would give me nightmares! (note: I have an unexplainable fear of the faces of Thomas the Tank Engine characters)
Branden: There is Sonic the Hedgehog...
Me: Oh yeah, haven't you been wanting to watch that for a while?
Branden: Well, I'm not so sure now...
Me: Ok, well we can watch Berenstain Bears, or there's Blazing Dragons...I think I remember that one...
Branden: I wish they had Dexter's Laboratory!
Me: Me too! I loved that show! Sadly, they just don't have the cool stuff on here yet. *More scrolling and looking*
Branden: It's not that I don't want to watch Sonic...but I'm just nervous that since I loved it when I was 6, it might not be that great to me now. I don't want to ruin it.
Me: Well...do you remember much of it from when you were 6???
Branden: Not really but I just knew that I loved it. I guess we can watch it; now I'm kind of curious.
Me: You realize that we potentially just had the most immature conversation of our adult lives. You can't watch X Men because you get nightmares, I can't watch Thomas because it scares the crap out of me, we both want Dexter's Laboratory, and you're hesitant to watch Sonic because it's legendary in your mind!
*End scene with huge amounts of laughter followed by watching Sonic the Hedgehog...which was ok*
