November 2021 . . . .
My wife and I agree on many things. Not films. Its not that she only likes chick-flicks and I watch guy-fare, although she frequently does and I often do. Our tastes overlap. Sometimes. All good, right?
Well, no. Theres another issue.
Backstory: K selects most movies we watch together. For you husbands married for a little or a long time, this is common sense, and it took me a while to recognize this, and to watch whatever she selected without complaint (or worse: scene by scene film-school analysis with color commentary. Like a boxing match.) Much better to just let the motion picture run its electronic course. In our time-together, therefore, Ive seen some real turkeys, some forgettable light frolic, and the occasionally terrific film. So what, you may ask, is the problem?
