I am sorry I have been missing from the blogging scene for a few weeks. But, I have a solid alibi for where I’ve been.

It isn’t the usual excuse – having a blogging/existential/both crisis. Well, it sort of is, but it has been more of me trying to avoid having a crisis in the first place.

Don’t kick the seats.

I know only about ten people will read this, but if you’re somebody who kicks the seat in front of you while watching a movie at a theatre, or a play, or a concert, or any social arrangement that requires being in rows of seats (like a wedding or a funeral), DO NOT KICK THE SEAT IN FRONT OF YOU. Don’t you ever get kicked at? Don’t you feel Continue reading “Of Entertainment and Etiquette”
