With me, if I like something-a food product, movie, book, TV show, anything-it's bound to fail in the marketplace. It never fails.
Conversely, if I loathe something, it will be mega successful (see : Titanic, James Bond books and movies, the X Men trilogy (ugh!), Anne Rice (never have liked anything of hers), the Planet of the Apes anything...
They should use me as a product tester, but in reverse. If I like it, cancel; if I loathe it, market like crazy.
Speaking of things one likes/dislikes : My DH and I were talking about an old song both of us remembered , but we can't think of the name, the singer, or enough of the lyrics to google. It's a country song, and it's about a girl on her wedding day who gets a bouquet of roses delivered to the church. There's a note with it, and she reads it. The note sounds at first like it's from an old boyfriend who still loves her but couldn't bear to go to the church and attend the wedding-but then it becomes plain it's from her father, who arranged to have the flowers delivered after his (obviously expected) death. It's driving us both crazy. Anyone have the name of the song or of the artist?
