A friend of mine, who lives far away, reads my blog and she had this to say about my thoughts on Wrestlers. "I read your review and think you should let rip and lose the slight apologetic tone and trust in your reviewing instinct. %@#$ those morons, they should be banished from your consciousness."
She is right. My thoughts on Wrestlers, although completely honest, were constrained and formal and (let’s face it) dead boring. Do you have to be a Dorothy Parker bitch to be interesting? I suppose the reality is that I should have been thinking about how "words have effects" as Sharon so clearly put it in Shez Sharon.
But then, the whole point of writing this blog was to call a spade a spade. I have Sharon’s voice in my head. She would have said, "But not everybody wants to be a spade." And that’s the truth. I am going to have to figure out a solution to this conundrum.
In the meantime I am going to try and be braver.
