HO. HO. HO.

This is the time of year that brings out the need to go do something festive, partake in a special event. Some people go to the Nutcracker, or maybe a production of A Christmas Carol.

My kid wants go see this over Christmas break. To be fair, it wasn't his idea. A pal came up with the plan--one of my pals.

Pretty damn pricey performance by amateurs (none of the bodies were trained professionals at being bodies, eh?), that's how I can tell it's in the holiday tradition.

  2. We went to the BodyWorlds exhibit when it was in LA (infamous because some crazy lady stole an 80-year-old preserved fetus from the display). I thought I would be all squeamish, but ultimately, it was totally fascinating. And I dredge up my memory of their exhibit of smokers' lungs whenever I start feeling the itch for a cigarette.

  3. Now Kate, why is it that just about every comment I feel inclined to make to you lately is:

    Ew!

  4. I saw this exhibit when it was in Minneapolis (called bodyworlds - sounds like the same thing). It was pretty interesting. I spoke with some people who felt their lives were changed by it. My life wasn't changed, but I'm happy to know where my organs are finally. I think it's cool your kid wants to go.

    You should totally let your son go. You should also buy him a Metallica album. FOR NO GOOD REASON
    From your awesome conscience
    He would like Master of Puppets. BUY IT FOR HIM! AND LET HIM GO TO THE EXHIBIT! OBEEEEEEEEEEY YOUR CONSCIENCE!

  7. sam and bettie and carolyn jean--yeah, it sounds Tasteful. All the pictures from the exhibition are of solemn young kids staring with reverence at bits of bodies. I don't have a problem with it. I'm just not sure I want to shell out the money for all of us.

    I suspect Mr. Awesome is Boy2 and there might not be room in the car--not Boy1s more laid-back manner. AND I suspect I'll be driving too.

    What, John? Don't you think gazing on well-preserved bodies is festive enuff? Better than crocs, some might argue. Has your cousin MET you, cd?

  8. Chris wanted to go to the bodies exhibit, but I didn't, and don't, want to.

    I think it is because I'm such a sap that I can't get past the fact that these were all people, that I would be looking at a person who is gone.
