Question & Answer
"My wife always makes me feel like I can not understand movies because I do not have enough understanding of art. She went to college and graduated in humanities. But I, on the other hand, had my fill, and could not stomach it after a few semesters. We've had many warm discussions over the matter. It is true that after virtually every movie we watch I end up asking her to explain parts of it. I do not think that studying art or humanities and every thing of that nature is bad, of course. I simply thought that a person could get by in life, relatively well, without all that. so who's right? Me? or the me who partially agrees with her? or totally her?" -- Dave of Augusta
