For the past five years my sister has taken it upon herself to get me a T-shirt for my birthday but not just any old one…Oh no. Every year she has sent me a T-shirt that depicts something from our childhood. I think it started as a way to embarrass me but since I have no concept of shame anymore I have embraced this tradition and look forward to what she sends.
This year she has sent me something from what is my all-time favourite movie; Ghostbusters. I adore this film so much. I even love the often loathed sequel – I really don’t think it is as bad as people make it out to be.
Ghostbusters really represents a more innocent time for me. I was about 6 when the sequel hit the theatres and with the success of the animated series at that time it was probably at the height of its popularity. I remember having all the toys and playing with them as I made my own adventures up in my mind and I had no worries in the world. Oh how I long for another feeling like that.
Maybe that’s the appeal of nostalgia; to break away in to an almost childlike existence once again where you escape the drudge of reality? Boy this is getting deep.
Anyway, thanks Sis for another T-shirt to add to the collection.
