There are people who, having read a book or seen a movie, will never again read that book or watch that movie. I am not one of those people. There are books that I've read over a dozen times, and sooner or later, I will read them again. And I'll watch certain movies any time I happen across them. "Rushmore", "Miss Congeniality", "Little Miss Sunshine", any Godfather movies, including Godfather 3, "Rocky" and "Rocky Balboa" (no other Rocky), "Office Space", "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day" and maybe 20 other movies all reside on the list of movies that I'll watch with varying levels of attention but full enjoyment every time they happen to be on TV.
My husband laughs at me. "This again?" he'll say. "Haven't you seen this movie like a hundred times?" A hundred times. Hmpf. Ridiculous exaggeration, of course; I've seen most of these movies no more than twenty-five times. Thirty at MOST. He, however, watches football nearly every Sunday, and for a good part of Thanksgiving weekend every year. If anyone wishes to explain to me how every single football telecast is not EXACTLY like every other football telecast, I'll listen with polite interest. Only after you're no longer in the room will I roll my eyes and say "whatever" as I reach for the remote. Because there's a "Godfather" marathon this weekend.
