Raiders of the Lost Ark is the only movie my dad and I saw twice in the theater together.
I was nine. My dad was a year younger than I am now.
Remember in the tent when that nazi, the creepy one dressed in all black with the burnt hand, pulls out the Bruce Lee/nunchucku device that ends up being a coat hanger?
My dad and I simultaneously looked over at each other and said without saying anything, “Oh my God, this is going to get good.”
I’m thinking about this now because the theme song from Raiders shuffled through my iPad as I was checking email at the kitchen table this morning.
Directly across from where my dad used to sit.
If I had a DeLorean, I’d get that bad boy up to 88 mph and revisit that moment right now.
Maybe we’d buy popcorn this time instead of sneaking it in from home as we often did.
