Watching a Disney movie called The Kid started me thinking thoughts that may have occured to many I don't know, but they occured to me. The main character was a man about to turn forty and one day he meets a kid he soon realizes is himself at eight years old. They spend the movie trying to figure out what brought them together in time. Finally they think it's a schoolyard fight to rescue a three-legged dog, a fight that he lost many years before on his eighth birthday, this time he wins but that isn't it, then his father bawls him out for fighting and bringing his dying mother to the school, and then he sees his father through new eyes for the terrified man he is about to lose his wife. He and his younger self get dinner and come out to see an older self and his family, the older self flys away and the younger self disappears back to his own time.
What would you do if you suddenly met yourself as a kid? What would your younger self think, would you be happy with what has become of you as you grew up? How much of your childhood or adolecence do you actually remember? Good things or bad things? Do you remember the kids you went to school or grew up with? I wish I had answers instead of questions, but it's facinating to think over.
