Last night my husband and I were watching television, and, at the end of a particularly moving scene, I looked over at him, tears in my eyes, to see his face dry as the proper way to act in an Oscar Wilde play.  We then had the following exchange:

Me:  You have a heart of stone

Mike:  Yeah, but you knew that already.
Me:  I know, but it’s getting harder and harder to pretend.
Mike:  Honey, that’s what marriage is for.  You get to stop pretending.

Damn you, Joss Whedon.  Damn you.

Because I’ve been trying to figure out for, literally, a decade how to make Shirley Jackson work in a modern urban setting.  And I could never, ever get it.

And now here you come with Cabin in the Woods and make it crystal clear.

Damn you.
