We Weren't Afraid of No Ghosts!

I am watching "Ghostbusters" right now. It is the first movie that came out in 1984. Our son was born in 1984, and at the ripe old age of three, he was hooked on that movie. He wanted to be a Ghostbuster. I cannot remember which Ghostbuster he wanted to be, Egon, Peter, Winston, or Ray, but he was serious about being one of those amazing fighters of ghosts. Of course, my husband and I had to equip that boy of ours with all he would need to be a Ghostbuster! Thanks to Toys "R" Us, Inc., our son was ready to fight ghosts with the following Ghostbuster necessities: 1. P.K.E. Meter- This meter is used to locate Psychokinetic Energy because paranormal entities are made up of Psychokinetic Energy. 2. The Ghost Trap- This very important piece of equipment served to imprison spirits. 3. Proton Pack- This piece of equipment is crucial to a Ghostbuster. The Proton Pack never runs out of the power that is needed to weaken an entity or to surround an entity with a "cage" to confine the darn thing. 4. Ecto Goggles- These amazing goggles are used to track an entity and also study its readings and locate entities that are invisible. 5. The Uniform- To look professional, and to be taken seriously, the khaki Ghostbuster uniform is a must. The uniform of a real Ghostbuster is loaded with a plethora of essentials, but there are too many to list here. 6. The Slime Blower- Positively charged Psychomagnetheric Ectoplasm is the Slime Blower's ammunition. This ammunition is scarce and the Slime Blower is to be used sparingly. Thanks to equipping our three-year-old with everything he needed to be a Ghostbuster, we never had ghosts inside our house, outside our house, or in the neighborhood! Our son wanted to be Dick Tracy at age 4, and Dick Tracy he became, thanks to good old Mom and Dad.

Our son is age 33. He is a financial analyst now. However, he started sculpting with metal and wire when he was just a little kid, and his sculptures are incredible. He would rather work on his art, but making money doing that is not feasible.

He is a financial analyst with a degree in Economics and an MBA in finance/marketing. He is mistaken often for the actor who played Spider-Man, Toby McGuire. Little kids and adults alike think Spider-Man is right before them all the time. Now my husband and I have Spider-Man to come to our rescue. He is the fellow on top being lifted by all 10 of his groomsmen on his wedding day.

Wish I could have seen you in action as Tarzan, my friend. Growing up, no goodies for us either, and Dad made kites and skate boards for us since money was incredibly tight. When a couple has only one child, a dream come true by the way, a couple can to a bit more for that one child. Funny thing is, he never asked for anything. I remember when he was working during college summer break, he asked me to lend him some money for gas. I thought the poor guy was going to have a heart attack due to the asking. Oh, Thank you for the funnies my friend!!!
