Is that you Harrison?

Brian Sr., Brian, and Sean went to see an outdoor showing of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom last night. Brian had to go to the bathroom so bad and there were no facilities, or trees, anywhere around so they had to come home before it was over. So, we are in the store today looking for the original Indiana Jones movies. Brian spots it and quickly picks up the box.

He holds it tightly into his chest and we make our way to the check out. He is looking over the box carefully. When it is our turn to pay, he hands the movie to the woman behind the register. He then turns to me and asks, "Mom, how come Indiana Jones looks just like Han Solo?" The woman and I both started laughing. I explained that the same actor played both characters. I think he did understand but it was strange to him and he really had to think about it for a minute. He is getting older but his brain is sometimes still in a fantasy land where the characters in the movies are real people.

I think that Sean is still trying to wrap his head around the fact that you can be Han Solo and Indiana Jones at the same time. I bet he is trying to figure out how he can be that when he grows up!
