I used to eat popcorn for every meal, she told me once. It made me feel like I was in the movies & my life would turn out happy in the end. Did it work? I said. I don’t know, she said, but I like to think the roughage counts for something.
I’ve seen too many movies to believe this would happen to me, he said & she smiled & kissed him lightly & said, It’s good to let reality in now & then, don’t you think?
