Don't remind me

AADL reminded me that 31 years ago Jaws made its debut.

In my mind, Jaws is inextricably intertwined with the taglines for the movies Blood Beach ("Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water - you can't get to it") and The Rocky Horror Picture Show ("A different set of Jaws").

How do you remember Jaws?

Ah, I remember going to Jaws on my birthday and coming out of the theater worried that a shark might jump out from behind a parked car - in COLORADO. I saw the movie again with my brother-in-law a few weeks later and jumped in exactly the same places the second time.

I also remember sitting down with my jaded son a few years ago and smiling inwardly as he burrowed farther and farther into the couch as we watched this "old" movie together. SInce then. "I think we're going to need a bigger boat" has been a favorite expression around the house.

How many years ago did this come out???

31 years ago, believe it or not!

I remember that my mother wouldn't let me finish reading the book... and I've never seen the movie because the images from the first chapter (when the woman is being eaten) still send chills up my spine. And that's after 31 years!
