So this I am sitting at my computer, slowly scrolling through Craigslist, looking for an apartment and for once it is pretty quiet in the office and I realized something.
The clicking of me using the scrolling function on my mouse sounds just like a fishing line clicking out. More importantly, it sounds like when Jaws first started to take the line out and Quint silently gets ready by strapping to pole to himself.
So basically, for the rest of the afternoon, I will be playing Jaws at my desk. Perhaps I will not be acting it out, but I will definitely be in the movie studio of my mind, frantically yelling “We’re going to need a bigger boat” and pronouncing my a’s like a Kennedy.
