My body works reasonably well, but I have always been a little jealous of people who seem to have special abilities. I’m not saying they are X-Men or anything like that, but they are able to do things with their bodies that I cannot do and I usually have now idea how they do it.

I enjoy going to the movies, but there are several rules that must be followed in order to make the experience enjoyable. I should add that it goes without saying that you should not see scary movies. Ever. Or movies that seem sad. Or movies with Keanu Reeves.
