Alijah Realizes Widescreen vs. Full Screen
Monica always tells me how much Alijah‘s personality is like mine. Not totally, but his little intricacies and nuances. I agree mostly, but the issue he had last week took the cake. He is totally in love with Cars, the Pixar movie. He has probably watched that movie in excess of 25 times. Anyway, when he last watched it, he wasn’t happy with the movie for some reason. He kept asking for it to be turned on, despite the fact that it was playing right in front of him. Monica didn’t understand his issue until she realized that the movie, which is widescreen, was being played in full-screen 4x3. At three years old, Alijah knew that this particular movie was not a pan and scan feature, and should thusly fill the entire screen. However, when he is actually watching 4x3 content, he is fine, so it isn’t something where he wants everything to be widescreen. Very funny, as he is becoming a little version of me - a miniature technophile, if you will.
