I'm in love with you. I always have been. I thought you were the unfair one, but it was unfair of me not to say it. So I've said it. I was nothing. I felt like nothing. Less than. You changed that.

The Art of Getting By. Being somewhat of an expert at this just getting by in life thing. I loved it. This is for the younger crowd and being an old man. I still got the drift of the plot.

Very moving, I didn't shed a tear. It did bring to light what we take for granted.
