Boys Don't Cry

Work was uneventful.

We cooked pork chops on the grill, and had them with mashed potatoes and asparagus.

We watched the movie Boys Don't Cry, which we both thought was great.

Movie synopsis: Follow Teena Brandon as she becomes Brandon Teena and claims a new male identity in the rural town of Falls City, Nebraska. There, Brandon successfully pulls off portraying a man unbeknownst to the women he's dating, eventually falling in love with Lana. He also befriends Lana's friends John and Tom. At First, Brandon's new friends like him and treat him as a buddy. But when Brandon's sexual identity is revealed, the deception triggers a spiral of horrific violence that ends in homicide.

We did a crossword puzzle, and laughed a lot, about pointing to the dictionary, and saying, "Why don't you put in the a and the c?"
