The simple things
“It might sound boring… but I kinda think it’s the boring stuff I remember the most.” – Russell, Up.
I watched Up yesterday and spent the end of the movie blubbering and involuntarily spewing snot out of my nose. So graceful.
Beyond the many superficial elements of the movie that resonated with me (I was a chubby Asian kid whose closest friend was an old man), it’s made my eventless trip back home feel like one of the best ever.
I even found joy watching my parents cut coupons and root through the discount vegetables at Price Chopper.
Simplicity is pretty awesome.
