God Save The Queen

A couple weeks ago I was riding in the car with my mother and one of her co-workers. Because the oscars were approaching we passed the time talking about movies. I mentioned that No Country For Old Men was defiantly going to win best picture. Me and my mom highly recommended the film and sighted it as one of the best new movies we had seen in ages. My mother's associate said that she herd it was good but wasn't sure if she wanted to see it because it looked like a dark film. She didn't like dark things. I noticed that I immediately and without a thought was done with her. Nothing she said after that mattered to me in the least because of that statement. What I mean to say is though I sure that people who don't like dark things have fulfilling and happy lives. But they have nothing to say that matters to me. The world is a dark real place and anyone who doesn't want to see that doesn't want to know the truth. And I have no use for them.

no future

Lots of people go to the movies to have fun, not to suffer. I now think that her response is acceptable.

I get that. But how she said 'I don't like dark things' made me think shes the kinda person who doesn't watch the news because its to depressing. The kind of person who would rather pretend something doesn't exist then to face the truth.
