Re: Childhood movies to introduce to kids

When I watched Ghost as a kid I thought it was funny, and when my sister and mom cried at the end I didn’t get it. I was like, “What’s so sad? He’s going to heaven. I can’t think of a happier ending.”

When I watched it as an adult with my wife I cried at the end.

Re: I'm Trying to Get Back into Fiction

You know what’s funny, I read the name “Jeffrey Dahmer” and my brain processed it as “Hannibal Lecter”, and I fully expected the rest of that sentence to read “was a real person”. I had to go back and read it again to understand why the sentence didn’t end that way.
