At the tender age of 10 I started boarding school and was in a dorm of 5 other girls. My bed was next to our room story teller. She could remember movies and tell them as though the film was right there with us.
I always remember her recounting Ben Hur over several nights but it was Alien that had me awake at night and only several years later when I saw the movie for real (for reel!), that I understood how incredibly accurate and detailed she remembered and told it: the razor teeth in the darkness with a smaller set quick firing through the open mouth….. 
I still get shivers….
And I imagine I will be lying awake again tonight as for the last night of his 30’s, the Big Man took me on a date, steak dinner, ‘Amelie bubbles’ for me and ‘fancy pants’ red for him…. and a movie.
