The Yellow Brick Road Is A Bit Yellow-er Than You Remembered

| USA | Friendly | October 3, 2016

(Even though I’m middle aged, my two female coworkers are old enough to be my mother. One day, at lunch, we somehow get on the subject of the movie “The Wizard of Oz.”)

Me: “I remember when “The Wizard of Oz” was on once a year, on CBS, on a Sunday night. It was A Big Deal when it was shown, and I got to stay up late to watch it.”

Coworker #1: “Yep! Do you remember when they tried to colorize it?”

(Coworker #2 and I exchange confused looks.)

Me: “What… in the very beginning?”

Coworker #1: “No, when they landed in Oz.”

(Now I’m really confused.)

Me: “That part has always been in color. It was a big thing that “The Wizard of Oz” was one of the first color films.”

(Something “clicks” with Coworker #2.)

Coworker #2: “[Coworker #1], were you first watching it on a black and white TV?”

Coworker #1: “Oh. Maybe…”

(Coworker #2 and I broke up in laughter.)
