The Innocence of Youth


For Christmas this year I decided I would get Ally something special. For the past 15 years we have been unsuccessful in our pursuit in finding the academy award winning movie from our past, and many of yours I'm sure, Drop Dead Fred. So this year I decided to give it one more go and saddled up on e-bay. 2007 was good to me and I was successful. Ally was ecstatic when she opened such a treasure, but we didn't have time to revisit our past just then. We went our separate ways for Christmas break all the while thinking of the joy that was waiting in our DVD player. Well tonight was the night and boy was it ever a joy. Throughout the movie we ewwed and ahhhhed at profanities, perviness, and sexual inuendoes. Who in the hell let us watch Drop Dead Fred at the ripe age of six years old. Who rented it for us and left us unattended while we watched a PG-13 movie? Watching now was a whole different experience. Although it's still a rare and precious gem, it was amazing to us to think that as children we never caught on to the actual jest of the movie. We never thought twice about the "b" word and obviously didn't understand the crude jokes. The beautiful thing about being an adult is that we still enjoy it as much as we did then and even more so because we understand it now. Thanks Drop Dead Fred, you were our only friend.

Wow. No wonder you two are such perverts now. You were brought up on Drop Dead Fred. Oh what do I know, I loved it just as you dirty birds did. I heart DDF!

Yeah I agree with Kate this explains why you two are so perverted.

I just hope that when you were finally reunited to watch it that you did so wearing your matching, little boy, dinosaur, sleeper pajamas.

I think that if you're truly comfortable with who you are as strong, heterosexual(?) women, you would post pictures of yourselves in said pajamas. Please, for the love of everything that's good and holy, bless the blogging world with your outlandish self-confidence.

Finally, a new post. You guys have been slagging off for a while. I laughed when I found out you first romped through this movie when you were both six. Excellent job ladies.

I must say I have not viewed this cinematic gem.
