Well, it happened.
I'm obsessed with Les Miserables.
I was dead set against it.
But this is what I wrote my sister:
"I realized that I have resisted Les Miserables
because I feel like EVERYONE likes it.
And you know how I feel about musicals.
And I feel like people who like it
tend to think they're somethin special.
But I watched the trailer,
and I started tearing up when I saw the dirty French children
running through the streets.
How could I NOT love it?
I mean, I love France,
and the common man fighting for his place in the world.
I need to be more humble."
And I saw the movie,
and those French revolutionaries did me right in.
Not to mention the themes of sacrifice,
justice and mercy,
Lesson in humility.
There's no going back.
