What’s This? What’s This? There’s Bodies Everywhere!

| Working | December 14, 2015

(We had someone from Ghana visit some time before this. I want them to come again and plan to give them an American story.)

Me: *to coworker* “So, I think he’d be able to understand some of the features, since the character’s killed by parents in revenge.”

Coworker: “But no parents ever get him.”

Me: *as I haven’t watched the whole movie, I move on* “But it’s just, he’d be able to understand, since this character dies and haunts them.”

Coworker: “But he doesn’t die.”

Me: *wondering what’s going on* “Okay, you tell me what happens.”

Coworker: “Well, he dresses up as Santa and goes to bring Christmas to everyone.”

Me: “That’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Coworker: “What were you talking about?”

Me:Nightmare on Elm Street.”

(She bursts out laughing.)

Coworker: “I’m so sorry!”

Me: *to coworker* “Just be grateful it wasn’t with a 10-year-old and a DVD player.”
