It was a bit before the noon hour when I finally made my way across town. The usual traffic congestion on McPherson was not a nuisance as on other days.
On this particular Monday, I had been invited by an old friend to Mass and then our for some lunch. Since my office was closed in observance of the holiday and also because I very much wanted to see her, I accepted the invitation.
"Church on a weekday?" I asked her somewhat perplexed by her phone invitation. "Do they even have mass on Mondays?" I continued in vain, hoping she would alter the invite to a different place.
It had been over ten years since I last saw *****, and I had lost all contact with her up until two weeks ago when a mutual friend of ours gave her my number. Days later, she sent me a text.
The last time we had seen each other, was a tough day for me. We had a big fight over something stupid and it ended everything we had.

The mid to late 1990s would have been a disaster for me if it had not been for the zany antics and outrageous dissection of my most beloved scary movies by horror hound, Joe Bob Briggs. Mr. Briggs was the host of one of my most cherished TV shows, Monstervision.
The show would air on TNT during Saturday nights and would usually broadcast some of the most awesome horror movies ever filmed. It was due to this awesome show, and Joe Bob's endless trivia and background information, that I began to fall in love with movies that are filled with mindless plots.

BTW, Joe Bob Briggs was even better on another show, Drive-in Theater, but I only caught that show when I would visit my cousin's house, since he had premium cable. Check him out here as he introduces "The Evil Dead", positively my most favorite movie eeeeever.
