I loved Pete from Pete's Dragon as a child. As in, 'Marie and Pete sittin' in a tree.'
In fact, to this day, if Pete knocked on my door and wanted to whisk me away from my wonderful husband and children to go run away with him and Elliot, I might be tempted for a second.
I wouldn't do it!
But for one second, I would think about it.
And for the rest of my life, whenever I would hear "I'll be your candle on the water," I'd think of Pete.
