That was the word I was anxiously looking for the other day during a discussion with some friends. Simple word, common I dare say. And it came to me a good six or seven hours later. Much help it would be at 3 o’clock in the morning. It’s not like I could call anyone – or even text them for that matter – and say “you know that word I was stuck on earlier tonight? Well, it’s…” Besides, I even ran the risk of forgetting what I called for while I was calling. That would be embarrassing, not to mention waking someone up in the early hours of the morning on a school night would be extremely rude.
I am a big TV and movies fan. I do not deny it. I do not try to hide it. I refuse to apologize for it. I would be perfectly happy sitting on a comfortable couch and watching my favorite TV shows or a movie, doing absolutely nothing else and worrying about nothing. Or going to the movies and indulging in the beauty and magic of the big screen – ideally sharing a huge bucket of popcorn with a friend or a loved one and immersing myself in the world that the film I happen to be watching creates. Oh, and no cultural productions and deep thought movies – I like Hollywood and the blunt entertainment it offers.
