1. First, you drink a few drinks
  2. Suddenly, its two-thirty in the morning.
  3. Your room is cozy
    Static
  4. Your bed has not one, not two, but three puffy white comforters on it.
    You are the princess and the pea
  5. And you are trawling Netflix for a nice, light romance. Not the cheese of a Hallmark-type movie, or anything too cynical or snarky either.
  6. Just romantic and lovely.
    It's late, you are weak. And drunk.
  7. What's this?
    Static
    Notice how it says "A love story for everyone."
  8. Also it's Netflix description
    Static
  9. Notice how there is no mention of
  10. Giphy
  11. Giphy
  12. No mention AT ALL of the fact that not just one but BOTH of these men will be DEAD from AIDS by the end of the movie.
    Yes, yes, you should have seen it coming. And the beginning makes it kind of clear. But, DRUNK.
  13. I feel that a movie is a contract for a happy or at least reasonably happy ending and that if this is not going to be the case
  14. YOU SHOULD BE WARNED WITH A FLASHING NEON BEACON BEFORE YOU START TO WATCH!!!!
    Saying "a new crisis comes their way" is NOT GOOD ENOUGH!
  15. Or you will be a sodden snot factory in the middle of the night.
  16. And then when through the veil of your tears you watch the end of the movie and learn that this is a true story...
  17. Giphy
  18. Giphy
  19. Giphy
  20. And now, in the cold harsh light of day, I may just throw away this pillow.
