Well, apparently the marketing people have been working overtime on the Pirates of the Caribbean promotions, because this image is everywhere we turn. P first spotted it in on the cover of a book in the children's section of Barnes & Noble and started yelling, "Hot Man! Hot Man!"
Today it was on the side of my styrofoam cup from McDonald's. The kiddos remembered the photo and all started shouting, "Hot Man! Hot Man!"
I am really not an extremist. I believe strongly that we should be IN the world, but not OF the world...but holy cow, that is a scary image for little guys! They don't seem that frightened, but what a harsh image to sear into their little minds. Is it so wrong to want to protect them from the harsh, scary things of the world as long as possible?
As we have been out & about a lot more lately I have been reminded of just how much little eyes & ears have access to, just walking around in public places. It is impossible to avoid the graphic lyrics of "love songs" playing in stores, overheard conversations between strangers, movie posters & magazines in the grocery store aisle. I am going to refrain from getting on a soapbox here...but I had no idea this all started so early! YIKES!
