Top Five thoughts clogging Paul’s brain this week

1. BARBIE – To see or not to see???

A) Greta Gerwig – Love her
B) Margot Robbie – Hot
C) Ryan Gosling – Never liked Ken anyway
D) Don’t own anything pink

DECISION: I’ll read all the social media posts and pretend I saw it. Wait to actually watch it on my couch.

2. This week’s excerpt from Florida Hustle

The wooden front door of Horror Time Video was hidden behind a life-size black and white cutout of Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein. Pushing the door open set off Horror Time’s version of a door chime – a woman’s terrified SCREAM!

Pausing inside the door, Michael sniffed the store’s acrid bouquet of mold and burnt wicks. Ray, the owner, favored ambiance over commerce, so his horror video store was lit by thirty-six candles flickering atop a half-dozen Liberace-style candelabras set on tables around the low-ceilinged room, the tarnished bases gloved in pleated jackets of wax. Stepping from a sun-washed Florida day into this shadowy den, Michael felt like he was nervously descending a basement staircase in The House On Haunted Hill.

God, he loved this place!
