“Thriller” is Wrecking My Life
Yes, I am referring to “Thriller,” the 1983 Michael Jackson thirteen-minute music video where zombies and werewolves stalk a young woman in heels.
It’s close to midnight and something small and terrified is lurking by my bed. It’s my seven year-old. She’s been showing up every night ‘round this hour for a month, since I was dumb enough to let her watch the Thriller video.
