|For only a dollar, you can make every night a Redbox Night!|
Oh the irony of the Undiagnosed Mad Woman to be claiming that writers are crazy. Just think about it for a minute.
Yesterday, I got a text message to save a few pennies on Redbox. So naturally, since I needed to go to Walmart to find some toasted marshmallows, it was the perfect scenario to pick up a movie while I was there.
We made it a Redbox night.
As I was browsing through the movies without my husband's assistance (my husband is the movie buff. He knows every actor and what they have played in even in their previous lives! I can identify Brad Pitt!), I decided to pick out a scary movie.
|Who is that guy??|
Oh I know - That is Brad Pitt!
Surprisingly, this is a pretty hoping Redbox location and everyone must have gotten a coupon because there wasn't much of a selection - that I was interested in anyway. So, since my husband is always begging to watch these scary movies and I usually prefer romantic comedy, I finally decided to get a horror movie of his dreams.
Maybe that was a bad decision. I recognized the name of the movie... and I could have sworn my husband said he wanted to watch it. So, with delight, I handed him my Redbox copy of Sinister.
Ok, so some people probably think I am whining like a baby. It scared the CRAP out of me. Not to mention, I have never seen my husband so... disturbed by a movie. Yet, I wouldn't let him shut it off. I was already invested and now I wanted to know what happened.
So last night, after some anxiety meds were taken, we went to bed with the lights on. And this morning I woke up with one very strong thought...
WRITERS ARE CRAZY!
|Doesn't this picture say crazy writer?|
So after the movie yesterday, I had to wonder, "How did this writer come up with this idea?" Was this something that stemmed from a childhood nightmare? Is this something stemmed for real life situations? I don't know. I don't think I am crazy and twisted enough to come up with something so twisted.
Then again... after reading 50 Shades of Grey I started wondering the same thing about the sanity of writers?
We are all crazy as writers... I guess it is just the level and plane of crazy we are willing to explore and expose!
