Listen to Stay - Sugarland Cover
Yesterday, being Valentine's Day, we invited friends over and watched Blindness. I think this was quite possibly the worst choice of movies for Valentine's Day. Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo did a great job, but seriously?
We also watched the first episode of a British show, Boys and Girls Alone. Sort of like Kid Nation on Crack, the show puts boys in one village, girls in another...without a single adult! (Well, there are adults filming who step in if something dangerous is about to happen, but it doesn't happen very often.) What I learned: Kids are mean.
Stay is told from the point of view of a woman who is having an affair with a married man. She just wants him to stay. I've retold it from the point of view of a man who only sleeps with married men. Like in Sondheim's Barcelona, he tiredly asks his partner to stay and then is appalled that he actually says yes!
