Trying to keep with a “Spooky” theme

In my efforts to try and keep the next few posts until Halloween spooky, I thought I would confess to something rather embarrassing. One of my earliest memories of being scared came from a seemingly innocent Disney movie. That movie was Dumbo.


While I cried uncontrollably – and still do – whenever the heart-tearing “Baby Mine” plays from mother elephant to baby, I’ll admit that the fear came from a different elephant. Pink ones, to be exact.

Yeah… it’s twisted. Like, I-just-partied-at-Woodstock twisted. You get my drift. The contorting, sneering, evil looking elephants freaked me out so much that I couldn’t stand to watch it.

Come on! Tell me that isn’t frightening for a kid!!!

Anyways, now that you’re probably trying to recall how that creepy, so-not-Disney song went, I thought I would be nice and include a link here for you to watch it. Alone. This Diva will not participate in any pink elephant parades any time soon!
