On Halloween, Sam watched Michael Jackson's Thriller video at a party we went to. For whatever reason, he must have thought of it tonight, because as we were lying in his bed and his eyelids were getting heavy, he suddenly asked me.
"Is Michael Jackson real?"
"Yes, he is real. Well, he died. But he was a real person."
"In this one movie, he was a zombie."
It took me a moment and I realized he was talking about Thriller, so I explained that it was a costume, like on Halloween then told him that Michael Jackson was a really good singer and dancer.
So, this Halloween, I am thankful for my kids. And the fact that at 8:45 at night in the dark, my kid might ask me if Michael Jackson is real.
