I have my priorities


For my Shakespeare class, I had to watch a film version of "Henry V": so long, so long, so long, so boring to me. I figured the Kenneth Branagh adaptation would be the best, so I went up to the LRC in the library, checked out the DVD, and camped out in one of the cubicles to watch the almost-two-and-a-half-hour movie.......................................................so long. Nearing the end of the movie during the denouement of the climactic battle scene, there was blood and carnage everywhere, and all I could think of was, "Man, were I those soldiers, I'd really want to brush my teeth." Ha. There are my priorities for you: clearly, it's definitely no coincidence I was born in 1987 and not 1487.

Ha! It's good to have your priorities in order. Kinda reminds me of the time Jessie was over and said she needed to go home so she could floss...

You really are my daughter. . . . I can do most anything if I can brush my teeth first.

But there is no greater soliloquy than that of King Henry V, nor delivered better than by Kenneth Branagh:

We few we, happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother: be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And Gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispians day.
