"If you wish to be loved,
show more of your faults than your virtues."
- Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Him: I just realized that you are totally going to love Nebraska ... (the film, I don't know how you'll feel about the state)
Me: I figured I would. (The film ... not the state.)
Him: I mean, it's about a crotchety, near-senile old man who bothers people. Right up your alley!
Me: I'm not following you ... Jerk ...
Him: Not following? That's probably the near-senile part kicking in ...
Me: Perhaps you didn't see the "jerk" in the response above ... said lovingly ...
.......... Ruprecht ( won't STOP being crotchety no matter what anyone thinks )
