I feel it may be worthwhile to announce that only fifteen years after its acclaimed release, I have now watched the movie Jurassic Park. Fifteen years ago (at the tender age of ten) I was not permitted to see it; my parents rightly labelled it in the "too scary" category - which meant I missed out on the fright-inducing slumber parties of that year and the years following while Jurassic Park remained the coolest movie to watch.
The only reason I can think of that I waited so long to watch it is that my parents' rules live on, embedded deep within my psyche. Jurassic Park will forever be a movie Palmer kids simply aren't allowed to watch.
Sorry, Mom and Dad... I've started down a slippery slope. Next thing you know, I'll be watching Forrest Gump and Titanic.
