On Monday I received a new laptop computer. I really should write a post on how I got it before posting this entry but continuity is for the herd. Some of the nice things about the new laptop were increases in processor speed, hard drive capacity and RAM. Also the screen is larger and way nicer than the one on the dumpy last laptop. Naturally this meant I could play more graphic intense video games and stream faster porn (yeah right, gross.)
Cashier: Have you seen this? referring to Hitman
Me: Yeah, I saw the movie but this is the video game.
Cashier: I'll never forget, I went to the theater to see this and right before it started I had to leave because of an emergency.
Me: That sucks.
Cashier: So what did you think of the movie?
Me: I found it interesting in that as I was watching it, I kept asking myself "Am I suppose to identify with the protagonist in this film?" I mean, here's a man who has been raised as an assassin, has killed countless people, and half way through the movie I'm feeling sorry that he's been set up by his employer to take the fall for something he didn't even do. Basically the main character is the embodiment of the classic antihero--
Her eyes glazed over, apparently confused, bored, or uneducated, so she cut me off
Cashier: No, I mean, is it like a good action movie?
Me: Um, the action is good.
Cashier: Whew! Good enough to own?
Me: Maybe not enough to own but if you're in it for the action you should see it.
I think I was just supposed to say, "The action was fucking awesome!" and leave it at that. I shouldn't take my creative writing education out on cashiers.
