There’s a Chinese movie that bothers the heck out of both Samantha and I — House of Flying Daggers, a movie about a blind woman who (spoilers!) can see. It came out at the height of Zhang Ziyi’s popularity following the success of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, but people loved it anyway in spite of how stupid it clearly is. And it’s infuriating to me.
Well, I think I’ve encountered some people who feel the same way about me drinking water out of a wine glass. Based on the looks, double-takes and smart-ass reactions I’ve been consistently getting these past few days, it drives them all absolutely batshit insane. You can see it on their faces — they’re just champing at the bit to scream “BUT YOU CAN ONLY DRINK WINE FROM A WINE GLASS” — but they know they can’t say that without sounding like an aristocratic nonce.
And it amuses the hell out of me.
