See, I didn't see it as a hopeless ending at all. I thought it was sort of magnificent, really.
He finally, after managing to forget what he was told by his mother, "realises" that he is a dinosaur, not a man with a failing memory and body at all! It is sad to think that he has forgotten his family but he does, at least, find a new way to be a whole self.

I can see him now, stomping along the grass on a cliff top, the morning sun shining on his (dinosaur) face.....
.....as the orderlies, finally tracking him down (again), hypodermics at the ready, chase after him and tell him that, no, he really isn't a dinosaur and it is time for his shots.

*fade out to a shot of both parties, defiant, equally sure that they are right*

*some sort of Hans Zimmer style music in the background. Or Norm's geetar*

Close. But it's a Tyranosaurus Rex with the hypodermic.

But they have such short arms, how would they ever reach?

His teeth are needles, and he has anti-psychotic saliva.

.....that's not how my cliff-top vision for this story was going, no.

Good stories this week.

I still can't get the image out of my mind of Sully from Monsters, Inc. looking over on the shelf of some woman's closet and seeing (what he thought was) someone's junk. Gotta get that image out of my head.

I loved it--"Dinosaur" especially made me strangely happy and optomistic about the future, especially with the great music in the background...

:wink:

It's not so much _Norm's_ dad per se, but the entire genus that is dad. It is genus right? I mean, I'm not distinguishing b/n new dad's and empty nest dad's, those would be a certain species.

I've just got so much love in my heart, why not share it with the people who need it the most? Dads.

I especially liked "Dinosaur". What an awesome ending! Mr. Rogers always told me I could be whatever I wanted to be, but my mom told me that Mr. Rogers was talking about choosing a job, not being a dinosaur. What a buzzkill. This story has restored my hope for my future.
