My Aunt called me this morning.
Aunt: I don't understand what happens at the end of Brokeback Mountain.
Me: What do you mean? What part did you not understand?
Aunt: Those cowboys, they talk funny. I couldn't understand them.
Me: Why didn't you just watch it with the subtitles on?
Aunt: Oh!! I didn't think of that. Anyway, it's too late. I already put it in the Netflix envelope. Please explain the ending to me.
(Alert - spoiler forthcoming)
Me: They kill the dark haired guy because he's gay. And the wife tells the other guy it was an accident.
Aunt: Oh. I thought the movie was kind of boring.
Me: Yes, it was boring.
Aunt: Ok, then. Talk to you later. Have a good day.
And she hung up. Seven in the morning for a conversation like that?
Now, what's up with this new cell phone ring that only young people can hear? Matt Lauer played it this morning, and I couldn't hear it. Does this mean I'm old?
