bedtime stories

Last week when I was away for Pack Night, Dave put the kids to bed and told them part I of this 'awesome' story! They have been BEGGING for him to finish the story every night since. Because Dave flew out to Florida last week (just to be picked up at the airport by his dad) and drove back to Arizona together -- along with my in-law's two big dogs -- and church meetings, etc, Dave is finally finishing the 'story' tonight.

I was wondering what story was so incredible that me kids were just on pins and needles waiting for it to finish. I just walked past him telling them the rest of the story... here is what I heard,

"So, Josh told the professor, "Before I came back to the 1950's, you told me I needed 1.21 gigahertz of power to get back." "1.21 Gigahertz! That only comes from plutonium -- and you can't get that in the 1950's, unless you know when lightening will strike!"

I was laughing so hard -- nice imagination there, Dave! I guess I know what movie we will be adding to our netflix queue! :)

That reminds me of this guy I knew in college who was really handy with cars. He was quite popular with the girls in his ward when they needed car help. If he thought he was being 'used' or if he thought he could get away with it, he would send the girls to the auto parts store with a list of things they needed to buy and would put on the list, "One flex capacitor"! Ha!

That's too funny! I need to watch that movie now too. We should definitely get together for a weekend. I'm finally not nursing or pregnant with no chance of it happening, so I could committ. Unfortunately neither one of us live in a cooler climate. Where should we go?

So I just finished the season finale of LOST before reading your post - and I had that on my mind for a while - before I realized you were talking about Back to the Future - funny story there, Dave.

TOO FUNNY! I may be wrong, but isn't it a "flux" capacitor?
I love that movie. The original 1985 one. The second one was pretty bad - the 3rd was much better.

Man, it's late - better get to bed before my flux capacitor stops fluxxing.

That's a great story. I'm going to have to remember that next time my kids want a story that's not from a book.

One of our boys new favorite movies... it's been so fun to introduce them to "our world", as dorky as it was. :)
