I have trouble when my child actors grow up. They will always be kids in my eyes. One of the actresses in the film I’m working on was in Punky Brewster. How much did I LOVE Punky Brewster? How much did I want to paint my room just like hers and be abandoned at the grocery store so that I too could find an old man who let me wear mismatched socks? God, that was a good show. The only thing I really remember about the show was the “Very Special Episode” where someone got locked inside a refrigerator and I learned that I’m not supposed to play inside of refrigerators. I also learned that apparently some people just have random non-working refrigerators hanging around in their sideyard. Who knew? I did not. But I felt “very special” after learning it, that’s for sure.
So anyways, this actress on the movie is running around in a mini skirt and a tight shirt, while getting hacked to bits. And I just keep thinking that her outfit is inappropriate for a child. I keep forgetting that she is probably my age – and mismatched socks just don’t pay the bills when you get to be my age. So I guess mini skirts are the way to go.
One thing I know for sure – The girl’s been running from an ax murderer while wearing high heels for the past two weeks – I bet she longs for the days when a refrigerator was the biggest threat to her mortality.
