An OLD Time for Us

This one is for TeenTuna, who just finished reading Romeo and Juliet for English class. Not only did they have to read it, and listen to it, and memorize and write down 25 lines from the play, they also got to watch "the really old movie" in class. When she told me about "the really old movie, I was wracking my brain trying to think of an old black and white Gielguld or Olivier version. Then it occurred to me, and with a tone of anticipatory annoyance, I said, "are you talking about the Zeffirelli film?

"YEAH!" She said.

I picked up my eyeballs that had rolled across the floor and said, "I thought you meant OLD. This one was from the late 60's."

"Exactly," she said. "Old."
