"My great Aunt Jennifer ate a whole box of candy everyday of her life. She lived to be a hundred and two and when she'd been dead for 3 days, she looked better than you do right now." – the critic in the 1942 black and white movie, "The Man Who Came to Dinner" to his nurse, who was telling him candy wasn't a good thing for him.
My secret indulgence?…the thing I yearn to do that always makes me feel rested and as if I have just done the most luxurious and decadent thing? A black and white movie in the middle of a weekday afternoon.
I wonder why I rarely allow myself this simple, satisfying pleasure?…Jeanie
