Childhood :: Movies and Nostalgia
Last night, I was curled up in bed with a kitty at my feet, "diligently" writing a grad school paper on "The Right to Housing." I had to type borrowers time and again and in true college-student fashion, my mind was looking for any chance to procrastinate.
Feeling a bit nostalgic, I thought of my Grandma Linda, the summers I would spend at her house and how every night before we'd go to sleep, me sharing her huge waterbed with her and at least one other cousin, we'd watch Nick at Night or a movie. My favorites was The Borrowers. We watched it together nearly every time I stayed.
Likewise, Bedknobs and Broomsticks will always remind me of my Grandma Donna. In fact, after watching it for the first time, my little sister and I raced home and twirled the knobs on our daybed to see if we, too, had a magical flying bed!
What are your most nostalgic childhood movies?
