the Bad Seed

Movie + September= Bad Seed

I, too, associate September with back to school- not for my son (they started in August) but for myself.
I've always felt a strong kinship with the horrid little Rhoda Pennmark- both in appearance and general bad attitude.  Looking back on family pictures, if there's one standing apart with crossed arms and a scowl, it's me.
It started early, here I am, just turned 4, headed out to the yard to do some coloring and not wanting to be bothered.

things did not improve when I got a little bit older-

Oh, if Rhoda had only survived that lightning strike she might be living in Albuquerque right now!

perhaps these things are hereditary....

  1. We listened to the radio dramatization of the Bad Seed in school, sometime in my formative years, and it scared the daylights out of me. I'm not sure I see the similarities...
