Since Halloween is just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to watch some old scary black and white movies. I found one called Village of the Damned and thought I’d try it out. It’s about this little village in England where everyone sort of blacks out for about four hours and the next thing you know…all the women are pregnant! When they all give birth to white-haired, glowing eyed kids they know that something is amiss. What’s so crazy about this is that these little kids can read minds and control people with their thoughts. The village people finally figure it out and the school teacher decides he has to block their mind-reading abilities, so while he’s teaching, in the back of his mind he’s saying “think of a brick wall…think of a brick wall,” and he’s building a wall brick by brick in his mind. The kids are all going…wow, something’s wrong…what could it be? Anyway, at this point I burst out laughing, and my whole family is looking at me like I’m a crazy person. (Except for Chris) But seriously!! It was so funny. So lately, when I’ve thought about blocking people’s thoughts I say to myself, “think of a brick wall” and I can’t help it, I burst out laughing. So if you see me laughing to myself, I’m not crazy, I’m just thinking of a brick wall.
