Wreck It Ralph

Wreck it Ralph

So on Tuesday I was allowed to join the Coppard clan in their daily festivities. I met Eleanor, aka Nicky Fury, and her husband through roller derby and they have three of the funniest boys that I know.

On skates Fury is one big ball of ferociousness who it's better to have on your side or to keep out of the way of. Once she's traded her skates for DMs I think it's still best not to wind her up, a lesson her kids are yet to learn, but it does lead to hilarity for observers.

As it was half term, I went along with her to the cinema to watch a film called Wreck It Ralph, which I'd never heard of, so had absolutely no expectations of it, but it was amazing!

It totally took me back to being a kid playing Super Mario and fighting Bowser. The big burly turtle makes a cameo in it in my favourite scene where all the bad guys from the well known video games get together and try to come to terms with their roles as the trouble causer.

I'm not sure if the kids found it funny as I could't hear anything over our own laughter.

Afterwards we went to Starbucks where I watched Sid display an amazing talent of drinking a hot chocolate, whipped cream and all, without using your hands. Tom contemplated all the toys he could buy with the 500 won coin I gave him (I didn't have the heart to tell him it was only worth about 25p) and Josef was not impressed when I mistook his impression of a woman's walk for a penguin.

Apparently, after I left them, they asked their mum if I was a spy, and that's what I was doing living in Korea.
