Do you want to know the secret to life?  Dread.

No, seriously.  Sheer dread.  That is all.  Utter puke inducing dread.

What?  You want more?  Vulture.  

Fine.  Here goes.  Does it feel like I am stalling?  How about now?  Now?  

Case-in-point.  Kidney stones.  Every time I hear about someone passing one, I cringe.  Like, a lot.  I mean, really quite a lot.  I even, on occasion, shutter.  Dude- I make the best nonsense photography puns of anyone I know.  Then, when, I actually passed a kidney stone, it was not that bad.  OK, so none of that happened.  Well, other than the dread part.

Real case-in-point.  Movies.  Take a movie like Lord of the Rings.  I love Tolkein.  He is absolutely brilliant.  His world creation is unparalleled in any fiction that I have read.  

Then sit me down in the theater for a film that I have waited years for that has mega-hype.  I will be disappointed every time.  I just went in with zero dread.  

On the other hand, take a movie like True Grit.  It is a remake of a John Wayne movie.  Now, John Wayne might be a fantastic actor, but then again, I have no evidence of that fact.  It is about a teenage girl and her taking a journey of discovery.  At this point, I am thinking it sounds like The Journey of Natty Gann.  

I am full of dread as I walk into the movie with Wendy.  I am thinking about the money I just threw away, the better ways I could be spending my days, etc. So, I am completely blown away because it was so much better than I dreaded it being.  

We drove out and back to Utah two weeks ago.  I was so against it.  I did not want to be in the car, away from the house, doing what we were doing, etc.  So, of course, it was the best time in literally, ever (no, seriously, literally).

(Have you seen any good movies lately?)
