Thought for the day

When hanging out and talking sports with a few guys that you either barely know or just met, it might not be the best idea to ask if anyone wants to catch a late screening of Brokeback Mountain when things are breaking up. Even if you were joking. Or not.

Unless you want to deliberately clear the room. And compel everyone to look at their watches and say they're late for somesuchsomething. Or make them begin to question why you write about sweaty men.

What can I say? I want to see it again, man. And the Main Art Theatre was right across the street. But I ended up driving home. And I never actually asked about the movie. But I thought it would've been funny.
