Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Takes Me Back To High School Edition


The down side of social media has been in play all this week, as my high school cohorts prepare for the 25th anniversary of our graduation.  Sadly, it’s not looking like I can make it, but I’m kind of okay with that, so long as I can watch ‘Say Anything,’ the movie that is more 1989 than my actual 1989 ever was.  Though I was never as tenacious as Lloyd Dobler, nor as a successful as Diane Court, there’s a truthfulness at the core of the performances that will always take me right back to high school (for good or for ill.)  Of course, if I want to go back to college, it requires me to bust out ‘Heavy Metal’ or perhaps ‘Liquid Television’, and as for adulthood, I’ll let you know when I actually get there.  It’s nice, on occasion, to vicariously relive the emotionally charged days of dating, algebra and bad lunch, which leads us to today’s nostalgic query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) doesn’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career.
