My granddaughter Eve’s favorite movie (the only one she has seen) is “Frozen” — the 3D animated fantasy produced by Disney in 2013. The movie was inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale — The Snow Queen. Eve can’t wait to sit at the computer to watch the trailer of the movie — check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbQm5doF (21 million views on YouTube – of which I think 18 million of them are by Eve). And she wakes up singing the classic songs “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and the Oscar winner “Let it Go” which was sung by Idina Menzel. Donna’s favorite song is the one the Trolls sing about Olaf — Anna’s boyfriend — “He’s a Fixer Upper.” Donna swears the song has no relevance to me but I do remember overhearing Donna tell a friend that I needed “a lot of work” when we got married. (See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHQI7CvzTyc ). Me? A “lot of work”?
Eve also has books telling the story of Frozen. In fact, she has two identical books. I will read one to her and then she’ll ask me to read the other. “It’s the same book” I say. “Read, Popi” she responds seriously. And hands me the book. Okay. I can do this. . . .
