Idiots in the Attic – Day #9 from the A-Z Challenge

Nolan, my 3-year-old grandson, is a movie freak. If he could, he would watch DVDs all day, every day.

Every morning, he searches through his parents' hundreds of DVDs to find one he wants to watch that day. Sometimes he sifts through my twenty or so DVDs to find his favorite.

My movies, the few I have, are almost exact duplicates of what his mom and dad already own, but mine are Grandma's, so somehow that makes my DVDs different and he sometimes wants to watch my DVDs.

The moment Nolan finds the movie he wants, he puts it into the DVD player and enters the magical world of whatever show he is watching.

So I was a little confused when he asked to watch "Idiots in the Attic." I had never seen "Idiots in the Attic," and I had never heard of "Idiots in the Attic." But I had to admit, I was quite amused by the title.

Brittney (his mom) and I laughed just thinking that somebody would create a movie entitled, "Idiots in the Attic." Then his mom realized that what he was trying to say was, Aliens in the Attic.

Yeah, Aliens in the Attic actually exists. Click the link to read about one of Nolan's favorite movies.

And that completes Day #9 from the A-Z Challenge. Brought to you by the letter, I.

  1. I haven't heard of Aliens In The Attic either, but Idiots In The Attic sounds like a great title for a comedy.

  2. Too funny! :O)

    My “I” post is here:

  3. I, unfortunately, have heard about AND seen 'Aliens in the Attic'. My husband watches just about every movie coming down the pike. Sigh.
    However, my granddaughters snuggle up and watch Disney princesses and Barbie movies twice a week. Girls are different from boys.
    I'll be following you!

  4. Priceless!

    I have a similar story from when Brian (now almost 30) was a toddler. He kept saying he wanted to watch The Flying Alligator. His dad and I tried again and again to figure out what he wanted and the poor kid was getting frustrated to the point of tears.

    The movie was The Flight of the Navigator.
