I occassionally use the idol swap scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark as a metaphor when talking about needing to cleverly replace or switch something so that no bad effects occur, but I just realized… it didn’t actually work out so well for Indie. Ha ha!
Coming back from the bathroom, you cautiously shuffle through the darkness on autopilot. As you come up to it, you almost just let yourself tip into the bed like a falling tree, but something you see through half-lidded eyes makes you freeze in place. Danger! You can feel the itch of it between your shoulder blades like… an itch between your shoulder blades. But I mean a really bad one. Like the kind you can’t reach. And has you doing a backward hump of a telephone pole or stucco wall to get at it. Anyways, back to what I was saying… Danger!
Maybe you’ll tilt your head to one side to improve your sight of it as you try to make out shadows within darkness. “Whussat?” you may mumble in your sleep-drunk head. You see a darker shape that should not be there…
It’s a booby trap!!! Well, a baby trap at least. Okay it’s just your baby. You’re still screwed. No matter how long you stare at that tiny trespasser, pondering how you can possibly overcome this obstacle, you won’t. Your chances of curing cancer by rubbing twigs together are better than your chances of moving that little one without setting him off. Sleep on the floor or couch, or treat it like a band-aid and just do it fast and be done with the suffering sooner.
