My big regret

The most memorable thing from my childhood is when I was obsessed with Spider-Man. For five years, every Halloween I dressed up as Spider-Man. I pretty much had Spider-Man everything: shirts, shoes, and pants. I don’t know how it started, probably because I saw the original Tobey Maguire movies when I was young. In 2007, for my birthday, my family did something that I would never forget.

In May 2007, Spider-Man 3 was just about to come out around my birthday. My meemaw bought me and most of my mom’s side of the family first day tickets to see it. I think that was the most exciting event that happened to me up to that point. When we saw the movie, I loved every moment of it. It’s a memory that I will never forget.

After 11 years, I re-watched the movie, and it was so darn awful! How could I ever like this movie? I was the most idiotic kid in the world to think that movie was good. I would beat my five-year-old self up for thinking this. The acting was so corny and bad, I almost couldn’t watch the whole movie. This is why you shouldn’t revisit things that you liked when you were a child, it can ruin the whole experience or memory.
