No One Asked for Monday Movies’ Opinion, So We Don’t Have to Offer It
Monday Movies just got back from a family dinner with distant cousins-in-law who can safely be called the one percent. This consisted mostly of repeating to ourselves over and over, “until they ask for your opinion, you don’t have to give it.” We may not have performed this principle uncorruptedly. There came a point, shortly following the statement that “if you take too many predators out of an ecosystem, the prey go out of control” and having something to do with how the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation shouldn’t vaccinate quite so many African babies because the real problem is that they’re having so many of them in the first place, that Monday Movies asked, just for clarification purposes, if our interlocutor, an AIPAC lobbyist and former NYC Assistant DA, was in fact maintaining a policy preference for more infant African deaths. She hedged, but her son (“there needs to be a political party for me — socially liberal, but hawkish on Israel and taxes”), bless his heart, said, “no, be fair, mom, that is what you’re saying.”
Monday Movies tenders this anecdote by way of admitting that we haven’t seen any movies this week, most of which was spent in more congenial company, mixing Hanky-Pankys and pumping fat beats on the stereo while supporting our sister in the construction of various ice creams and pies. But you did. What was it? What did you think? I’m asking your opinion, so you have to give it.
