Jared and I watched “Stranger Than Fiction” on netflix a couple nights ago. I have to admit I fell asleep toward the end but that’s what I should have expected starting a movie at 9:30pm on a ‘school night’ (I love how I can still use those phrases: ‘school night’, ‘school day’, ‘snow day’). Well anyway, the graphics were really cool (apparently mk12 did them) but one of my favorite parts was Harold trying to figure out if he was starring in a comedy or a tragedy. He kept a small notebook and as the day progressed he would tally up the comedy points and tragedy points mid-conversation/mid-step.
I got to thinking that if I spent my days at work doing this, things could really get interesting. Sitting and listening to a students’ problems while tallying up the points in my little notebook:
Break up with boyfriend- tragedy.
Break up with boyfriend because of a youtube video you posted of yourself over spring break- comedy (of course my facial expressions would be soo sooo tragic).
I have a feeling that most of my points would end up being comedy to me and tragedy to the teenager……as is high school (*sigh)…..
