Is this the only thing?
So, Michael Jackson died. And subsequently MTV has decided to play M on the TV. I like this decision. There's only so much Real World:Cancun a girl can take!
We happened to switch on the MTV right when the epic video for "Thriller" was coming on. Despite my kids' young age, I thought they should watch it.
And naysayers, they were fine and undamaged for life. So chill out.
Anyway, they loved it.
Today I was watching a news show and there was a MJ montage including a clip from "Thriller".
Dylan came running in from outside and peeked over the couch to watch the video.
"Do you want to watch the whole thing?" I asked him.
"Yes!!!" he said.
So I pulled it up on YouTube. Shortly we were joined by Elizabeth AND Benny!
Halfway through the clip I asked Elizabeth..."Do you like this video?"
"YES! I love it!" she said. "Is this the only thing on the Internet?"
"Uh, no," I said.
"There's MORE!?!?!?" she said.
"Yes, lots more," I said.
"Alright!" she said.
