I’ll be that someone

December 19, 2012


It’s lonely being a Sci-Fi fan at my house.

I’m not talking about Lord of the Rings or any of the recent Marvel comic movies. I’m talking about the stuff only a real geek like myself would enjoy. A real Sci-Fi geek likes less main stream entertainment. Doctor Who, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Godzilla, Gamera and so on.

While looking over the Sci-Fi movies coming out next year I realized how many of them I may end up missing on the big screen. 2012 had several of them that I never was able to go see. Some because I couldn’t make the time and some because no one would go see it with me.

Last week I noticed that a new Superman movie will be coming out next summer. Elaina absolutely loves Superman. After the last one came out we purchased it for her the following Christmas. She almost completely wore out that disk, if such a thing is possible. She watched it daily for weeks.

Last night I took a minute to show the most recent Man of Steel trailer to her. I asked her if she was interested in going to see it with me. She answered in the affirmative.

A couple of minutes later I lamented: “I sure wish I had someone to watch all these cool Sci-Fi movies with me next year.” Elaina reached over, grabbed my hand, looked into my eyes and said, “Daddy, I’ll be that someone.”

  1. Yea!!!! It is great to have at least one of your kids who will want to see that stuff. And of course you can always come see those movies with me, or with Mary and me, as we’ll no doubt catch them too.
