Achiever Wage was excited to hear that the Coen Brothers had made another movie. You know how he is about The Big Lebowski – he can repeat all the lines of dialogue.
He begged to go with us to see the sold out sneak preview of No Country for Old Men at the Aero Theatre last night. I’m pretty sure he thought it was a story about retirees who demand that the local radio station play their favorite music on the air between 6 AM and 3 PM.
It was a mistake to take him. He spent the entire film fiercely gripping my hand and sobbing all over my shoulder. I don’t think he saw half the film, what with his hands over his eyes as the body count (which is ample!) piled up.
As soon as we got home, he ran for the hugs of the other Wages. Poor guy.
