Being that it is September 11th, I thought it appropriate to reflect. I could ponder over the state of affairs in Chechnya (not great), scientific discoveries (a species of fish with two sets of jaws…so sci-fi), or the current book I’m reading at work (How I Became Stupid by Martin Page). Instead though, I think I’ll look at life in my apartment.
Yesterday evening went a little something like this:
Montana: I need a title for my paper.
(The paper is about a book on love. I haven’t read said book, but was told it was quote, “sappy.”)
Me: Love hurts.
Me: All you need is love.
(Clearly, not putting much effort into being creative. For that, Montana…I apologize.)
Me: Uuuummm, Love is blind.
Me: Love makes the world go ’round.
(I’m sitting on the couch, getting ready to watch Ugly Betty again on abc.com. )
Montana: Before you watch that, listen to this.
Me: Listen to what?
Montana: My inspiration for the title of my finished paper.
Me: I don’t want to. I just want to watch Ugly Betty.
Montana: No! Listen, it’s a classic.
(At this point in time, “What’s Love Got to Do With It” by Tina Turner is turned on full blast.)
Me: I don’t want to listen this. I’m putting in my head phones.
(Ugly Betty starts to play on the screen. I watch for a minute, and then proceed to take off my headphones.)
Me: Hey, can you please turn that down. I can still hear it.
Also, I thought it would be clever to title this post with some love quote I found on the Internet. Fortunately, or unfortunately…this did not happen. However, I still wanted to share what Danielle (I don’t actually know this person) posted on www.best-love-poems.com: “I love you. 3 words. 2 people. 1 meaning.” Aww. Reflect on that.
