I was chatting with D____ about movies when the following exchange occurred.
Me: I got the see the director’s cut of Alien at the Michigan, and it was GLORIOUS!
Me: I forgive Ridley Scott a lot, because that is still my favorite movie.
D____: I think that’s fair
Me: I still want my money back from the free screening of White Squall, though. THAT, I will not forgive him for.
No sooner had he called me fair than I turned into a judgemental jerk. It’s that sort of IM whiplash that could launch a thousand psych term papers.
