Good day Tay!
A few days ago I was at work and the movie Revolutionary Road was on TV. So me and my coworkers spent some short amount of time watching parts of it. I saw maybe 20 minutes of it. As far as I can tell it’s about a miserable couple, like when they became miserable and when they were not. I also suspect that the husband might be abusive, but alas never saw much proof of it.
But one scene I saw was when the wife in a desperate attempt of not staying miserable suggested they leave their home and move to Paris and start a new life she said something that stuck with me. She said to her husband “you can quit work and I work instead, you just figure out what you want to be in 6 months or so”. I was like “damn that is a pretty sweet deal”. Like imagine leaving a terrible daily life to go somewhere you really wanna go and have partner that takes care of you. That feels like a dream.
But of course the dumbass husband in the declined this offer.
After that I went back to work.
Here are some suggested topics for today:
- If you could somewhere with someone for 6 months. Where would that be and what would you do during that time? Who would you bring with you?
- Have you been away from home a very long time? In what way?
- Or talk about anything.
