Jimmy loved his pajamas that he got for Christmas they had wonderful spots on them and they were made of the finest silk. Every day he would wear them, they had not been washed since the day they were opened. No one could ever get him out of them. His parents tried to bribe him promising new pajamas if he would just change out of those crummy, spotted ones. It had been months since Christmas and everyone knew something was out of place when they saw young Jimmy in mid-April sporting his green and red spotted thermal pajamas. People would often give Jimmy and his family disgusted looks when they were in public. Jimmy’s teachers at school started asking him if everything was okay at home. Jimmy would always say yes; he didn’t understand why they wouldn’t be. The pajamas had many holes in them, the bottoms tattered from being dragged on the ground, its foul smell had worsened now unbearable. His parents quickly became desperate. They had no choice, they had to get those nasty pajamas off of him! On the day they planned to take the gross clothes off of him he did it for the first time. “Mom, dad I decided I would take my pajamas off to wash them.” His parents were startled and had to process this in their mind. “Are you sure son.” “Yes father but I want them as soon as they are out.” “okay, I’m very proud of you, son” said the father, “You’re really growing up.” That same boy grew up. He went to Middle School, High School, College, and continued all the way until he got his law degree all while wearing those old spotted PJ’s. By now the outfit was discolored and barely covered him, but somehow Jimmy believed his pajamas could get him through anything, almost like they were magic. People were still grossed out but Jimmy didn’t care. They helped him throughout his life, especially in passing his classes. They were the most comfortable clothes he had ever owned, and no one would force him to part with them. It wasn’t until after he had died as the most successful criminal attorney in the Northeast that people started to wonder: maybe the pajamas held real MAGIC!
On January 1st 2006, I watched a movie. One year later, I watched the movie again and again. I have watched it every year since. I had been rummaging through our movie cabinet, when I found an old box. I opened it up and inside sat three movies.They were the Back to the Future Trilogy. I knew there were only three movies and have waited for a new sequel to be made and added to our movie collection. The happiness those films brought me, by bringing our family together for our shared love of the movie adventure. The impressions we shared on the couch, the games we would play, and the clothes I could have worn.I remember devoting entire days to watch all the movies like a marathon. I remember wanting a DeLorean of my own, to travel throughout time and space. That was the year my brother was born, the year I lost so many teeth, a year I am slowly forgetting.That is the first year I can remember, events, family, the memories began for me there. Even with my memories exiting my mind I will always have the movies to take my mind back in time.

The future was supposed to be flying cars and self-lacing shoes, not Hover boards and UGG’s. OCTOBER 21, 2015 7:28 P.M. is the date and time, when Marty McFly and DR. Emmett Brown went Back to the Future. This 1989 film envisioned our world would be surrounded by electronics and alternative means of transportation. This date has come and gone and we are no closer to cars that fly or space age technology in our daily clothing.
