It's Summer of 1992
and one evening, I call out from the kitchen, “Turn that down!!!”, barely being heard over the Animaniacs theme song.
Wait. What? You don't remember that cartoon??? Pinky and the Brain? Dot? Yakko? Ugh, another thing Siri can search for you later LOL. So, it's the WB cartoon with the theme song that goes something like "We're Animaniacs, we're zany to the max, there's baloney in our slacks…"
Hey don't question my parenting. That was a Spielberg thing. ;-)
Sitting down for dinner that night I comment about the bruises that had begun to show up on Tommy’s legs. I asked "Tom Tom, what the heck are you boys doing at day camp?".
He shrugged and look back at his cartoon "Oh it's nothing Mom, we play dodgeball and everybody looks beat up.”
I was uncertain but soon we were absorbed in another round of Mario Brothers and a quick jump in the pool before bedtime.
