Frankenweenie is a new animated movie by Tim Burton. I love Tim Burton's movies But this is one of which I shall NOT be watching. I think it may be too close to home.

When my Wookie died, I was devastated. I could not come to terms with the fact that the last time I saw him, it was at the pet hospital, he was in a cage, hooked up to tubes. He wanted to come home with me but I had to leave him there. And that was the last time I saw him alive.

Many, many years ago, I read Stephen King's Pet Semetary. I have always thought that it is one of the scariest and creepiest book I have ever read. So, at those moments so long ago, I thought to myself if that will be something that crosses my mind should such a situation arise.

And it did, the situation I mean. I held Wookie in my arms, feeling the hurt and the loss, unable to comprehend how it can be so excruxiatingly painful. Then I thought of Pet Semetary. In those moments, when the mind is in such turmoil, one is not logical. All I could think of was to have him back for a while to tell him how much I love him, how much he means to me, how much I need him and most of all to say goodbye. 

No, I shall NOT be watching Frankenweenie.
