Good morning out there in blog land!!! I would like to blog today about something that I saw Saturday morning which was very shocking and a tad bit disturbing!
As I scurried about carrying on my typical morning ritual, my 7 year-old asked if he could watch TV in my room. He rushed to tune into Jimmy Neutron which was about 2 or 3 minutes in progress. Occasionally, I will glance at the TV just to see what some of the content matter is (which is how I came about the conclusion that they could no longer watch Ed, Edd, & Eddy), which I have never seen anything derogatory on this show in particular...that was all about to change.
In a nutshell...Jimmy made some "candy." It was little balls of a purple/green/blue mixture in which as he began his quest to make (what I believe was) his 2ND batch, he had his friends over "taste testing" it so that he could get it just right to take a treat to class the next day. He couldn't get it right before his friends had to leave, not to mention, it took the candy about 3 hours to be complete since the sugar bonding was quite a complex process.
When Jimmy took the bag to school the next day, he was a bit reluctant to pass it out, because he wasn't sure if it was just right...but regardless, the class came over and helped themselves. As each person took a piece of candy, a look of pure delight and extreme bliss consumed each and every person in the classroom-including the teacher, but alas, his stock was depleted.
That night while Jimmy lay in bed, the 2 friends that he had "taste testing" the candy two nights before, snuck in his bedroom at about 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning...DEMANDING more candy! He tried to "console" them by explaining the process and assuring them that after a few hours, it would be ready, but there was a thunder of commotion outside...it was the entire class...outside his window...at around 2-3 a.m....demanding the candy!
Jimmy saw this as a means for exploitation, thus, there were scenes of his friends and even the teacher on their knees begging, offering money, offering favors etc....for this candy (which by now I began to call CRACK in my mind)!!! I don't know about the rest of you, but as I watched this show and saw people exhibiting typical "dope fiend" behavior for this candy, I was utterly amazed, and quite disturbed!!!
Am I over analyzing/reading too much into this? Help me out here fellow bloggers!!!
