the best things: reliving childhood

20 Sep

This past weekend marked a major landmark in my life- I was able to see THE LION KING on the big screen once again.

Tearful, joyous and in awe, my mom and I sat at Hollywood Boulevard’s El Capitan theater side by side just as we sat 17  years ago in a similar theater in San Francisco.

Popcorn in a plastic themed tub was shared, and songs were boisterously sung at the tops of our lungs. Perhaps the only difference is that I’m not quite as scared of Scar and I wasn’t in some sort of booster seat/floral print Laura Ashley legging get-up upon arrival….although I did consider both.

In short, The Lion King 3D is beautiful and magical for no other reason than us 22-ish year olds get to relive a defining moment in our lives—-The moment we realized “Oh, I just can’t wait to be kiiing!”
