April 4, 2008 - Wes Burns
Ever since this blog started some many untold years ago I have received letters. Well, they would be letters if my blog were in a printed paper; since its a blog they are comments. I have received comments. After careful consideration I decided to give you, the reader, my attention and take some time out to answer some of your comments.

Wickedgiant, who I can only assume is some kind of ill mannered Goliath, wrote: The best kind of movie theaters are "over 21", serve pizza and beer, and show films that aren't necessarily box office hits. Wes, maybe you should look into starting a business of your own...

Thanks for the comment but what are you trying to tell me here? I can't help but notice that “over 21” is emphasized, and with quotation marks no less. Are you suggesting that I open some sort of “adult” movie theater? I'm sure you weren't but see how creepy those quotation marks made the word adult? I do enjoy your idea but I'm not the man to operate a business like that. I've been drinking and eating to some of the finer independent films for years and have yet to see dollar one.

It was kind of strange that you just trailed off at the end there; makes me wonder...

JuanCarlos, whose lack of a space between his names leads me to believe that he really just has the one name...like Cher, wrote : Wes. I've enjoyed all of your blogs so far. The two part story made me laugh out loud at work and I completely agree with you on this Facebook post.

He went on to say some other stuff about how the post I had written applied to his life personally but I think his message got across after he said I was funny. I did think it was a bit ironic that in a post about hating posts JuanCarlos left a long post agreeing that posting is annoying. I also appreciate the friendly tone of using my first name.

Thank you for taking the time to write JuanCarlos. If you send a self addressed stamped envelope you can receive a special “A Stranger's Opinion” decoder ring!

The next comment is from...nobody. Apparently I just had the two comments. I kind of wish I had checked that before sitting down to write this post. I'm just going to bail before this gets too depressing and I continue to make fun of the only people goodly enough to actually leave a comment. Adios!
