Philadelphia's Please Touch Museum has always been pretty awesome. When were kids, my parents would take me and my brother there and let us loose to -- get this -- touch things. In a MUSEUM. We learned about all sorts of things like a kids version of city life and mechanics and art and touching. We pulled levers and pushed pedals and inflated balloons and constructed worlds. You want to see a kid go batshit? You take him to the Please Touch Museum.
This place was already like some version of Big on steroids, but now they've just entered a new realm of making kids' dreams come true. A crazy rich local couple just donated the movie's giant piano to the museum. THE giant piano. THIS giant piano.
And now I'm totally hyperventilating because I am this close to having my childhood life goal come true: to roll around on the VERY giant piano that Tom Hanks jumped around playing Heart and Soul on in 1988. I want to create a chaotic cacophony to the tune of every 80's child's dreams. And now I'm all I gotta go to the Please Touch Museum I gotta go and B is all ummm aren't you, like, 24? and I'm like FOOL, you don't UNDERSTAND this is BIG and he's I'm pretty sure that I understand you're a freak. So I think we're making progress. I WILL play that giant piano with my feet and I don't care how many small children I have to push out of the way to do it.
