Happy 44 Days to Fifty Shades of Grey!
Recently I was thinking about poor neglected Luke Grimes, he’s not been getting much attention from fans. Maybe he’s the middle child of Fifty Shades of Grey? As far as acting goes, maybe. But, in the Grey family Christian is the middle child, I think he shows signs of the impact of his birth order. I tip my hat to Erika, again…
Signs of Middle Child Syndrome:
Acting Out or Overachieving (to gain attention)
Feelings of inadequacy
Loner of the family
Yes, that does sound a LOT like our Christian Grey. Acting out or overachieving to get attention – he did both! Low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy, again, classic Christian Grey. He also feels like he doesn’t fit in with his family and although close with his family does keep them at arms length. As much as he overcomes it for business, at heart Christian is an introvert.
As for Luke Grimes, I think we need to show him some more love, we wouldn’t want him feeling neglected too. Perhaps we can find some arm porn on him?
And for those of you wondering about the title, “Elliot, Elliot, Elliot” it’s a play on an episode of the Brady Bunch where Jan (middle child) complains that Marcia (the oldest) gets all the attention and during he episode says, “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia”
