The Bourne Obsession

Lori has a bit of an obsession with Jason Bourne (and Capt. Jack Sparrow, and superheroes, and Disney....). She has a favorite scene from the movies which involves Jason Bourne running through Grand Central Station, although she can't remember if he was trying to make a train, stop a train, or jump over the tracks in front of a train. In any case, every time we go to New York, Lori wants someone to relive this scene for her. I've politely refused the first couple of time we were there, but on this trip, each of the children told her that they would be willing to help out.

Yeah right.

We started out all full of bravado, ready to go, but when it came time to actually do the run, there was some prompting needed. 

Apparently my children didn't understand the size or crowd level of Grand Central Station, and enthusiasm for helping Lori relive the movie quickly waned...

Despite her best efforts to revive them...

If you have kids, you know what happened next. I had to step in to make sure that my wife got what was promised to her. It fell to me to do the run across the station, but there's a difference between Jason Bourne and myself. Jason Bourne is single. I'm married, which means that if I have to run across Grand Central Station...

That should convince her that we don't need to relive the cliff diving scene from Pirates of the Caribbean. 

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby and Friday Daydreamin at R We There Yet Mom. If you didn't get here from one of those sites, you should really go check them out. There's people there who are creative enough to live their own lives without recreating scenes from movies. Except for Rocky of course...I mean, we've all done that one.
