THINGS I DO WHEN I SEE AN EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD MOVIE OR PLAY

  1. Weep uncontrollably
    Even if it's not sad
  2. Get ferociously angry/jealous
  3. Not be able to talk about it for anywhere from a few hours to a few days then not be able to stop talking about it
  4. Get so grateful to be alive
  5. Frame all of my ideas through the lens of said movie/play
    This is challenging for my writing partner (shout out @Lisha)
  6. Google the shit out of it/those involved with it
  7. Remember it exists in a few months and start laughing/crying/both
  8. Not be able to see it again for fear the experience will somehow be tainted the second time around
  9. Repeat lines from it aloud to myself, in my car
