Stay - Sugarland Cover

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!
