Clunk --- Day 12/123

Walk: AMC Kabuki, Park

Distance: 4.6 miles

So Ciwt never readt he book, but she thinks it is probably better than the movie of Are You There God?..... In book form readers can have their own relationship with the material they are reading, connecting to the people and happenings they personally relate to.  By readers, Ciwt means children or young, young adults who are deeply sensitive and curious in their own yet unformed ways.  They are also self-conscious and freaked out about body things even though they want to know.

So it was odd to Ciwt that the movie is so straight-forward and explicit, which is kind of what pre-teen girls absolutely are not.  To Ciwt, the movie felt like:  Okay, here's the story, no wiggle room, no cutely upsetting quandry so big that it won't be quickly resolved, that's it, Clunk.  She wonders if today's pre-teen girls will particularly relate.  Hard to know because Ciwt was perhaps the youngest person in the theater with no men in sight, and she supposes everyone of those woment was their puberty changes including getting their period for the first time ๐Ÿ˜‘in the 1950's. Several of them clapped.  Ciwt thought: Clunk.

The movie is good, well done, but somehow there is no reality in all its reality. Clunk.
