Not Exactly Your Classic Boy Meets Girl Story (for Trifextra)


Trifextra gave us a fun assignment this weekend. Retell your favorite book in 33 words. And really the hardest part for me was picking a favorite book. Considering what an illiterate boob I am, I sure had a lot of ideas swimming around in my flabby brain. Until I settled on this one. It’s actually a screenplay written by a little-known actor at the time named Billy Bob Thornton. It was later developed into a movie of the same name. It’s definitely a favorite around this house, which probably makes us a family of freaks. Although I’m not sure we can really blame that on the story.

* Spoiler Alert – I tell the whole story here. Don’t read it if you don’t want to know.
