We finally came up with a partial answer to the problem of finding a decent movie or documentary to watch.
Before October 6th 1889 this was not an issue.
This past weekend, it was Sunday evening. both of us were feeling a bit lost, we couldn’t find anything to watch, I suggested that it is no different than someone who is addicted to sugar. (Speaking as someone who LOVES sweets).
Confession time – my taste buds prefer the sugar in a candy bar over that of an apple, even though I “know” the apple is supposed to be better for me.
I’ll have the brownie, thank you very much.
In the same way I suspect, my brain craves entertainment, escape, something to fill the void of a quiet evening. I pontificated on my theory that both of of our brains might be in need of a little re-calibration.
What if, in the place of another brain dead movie, one of us read out loud to the other?
Find a good book and see what happens.
So that’s just what we did.
We have several (3) book shelves on our second floor overflowing with books neither one of us have ever read.
My wife came down with a couple of choices.

I was hooked within the first two minutes.
Going to continue this experiment through the end of the year with periodic updates right here. 🙂
