Where’s Jerry’s Mom when you need her?
Kim and I watched Hotel Rwanda last week. Apart from being embarrassed to be the last people in the enlightened world to actually see this movie, we loved it. Powerful, gripping, depressing, ultimately life affirming.
And then we turned it off and went to bed.
And Kim couldn’t sleep. When she can’t sleep, well, she gets very friendly.
But I had just watched HOTEL RWANDA! A movie about GENOCIDE! It just seemed wrong.
Is that a sign of Manopause?
Also, let me call your attention to the difference between the words “unable” and “unwilling.” That seems important here.
