A Christmas Story

Ralphie: I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!
Santa Claus: You'll shoot your eye out, kid.

One of my all-time favourite christmas movies has got to be A Christmas Story, one of the funniest movies from any time of the year. The film, celebrating it's 25th anniversary , tugs our memories back to when we were kids at christmas, hoping and praying for that special gift.

The dialogue from the movie is exquisite, and the situations Ralphie, his father (Darren McGavin) and his brother get into are priceless.
Mental Floss has a page of Trivia about the movie and did you know you could buy the leg lamp? In fact there are 13 different leg lamp items for sale at the A Christmas Story House Gift Shop

Here's the movie boiled down to 2:09:

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
