Freddy

My sons’ pleadings were relentless. I was adamant. Just because every other boy in grade school watches Freddy Krueger’s Nightmare on Elm Street every weekend, not my sons. But they wore me down. I said “OK” but we would watch together. I made popcorn, put the tape in the machine and, with remote in hand, we settled in. Freddy did his thing. After twenty minutes, Freddy and I were all alone. I hit the remote and found the boys in their room, contentedly playing with their race cars. “What about Freddy?” I asked. The answer: “That’s OK. We’ve seen him.”
