Michael D'Agostino's Question of the Month



“Who would play you in a movie of your life?”

Wow, that would be an extremely dull movie, which is probably a very good thing. You know the old curse, right? May you live in interesting times.

Not that things are always calm. Take this fine morning. My pinkie hurts. A lot. I've already dug into the nail bed with a set of clippers and a knife, convinced, absolutely sure, that the nail decided to grow sideways (because it happened on my toe this summer--a wicked little dagger of nail that was quite uncomfortable after running a 5K). Anyhoo, I've cut away all the nail that I possibly can and so far, no relief. 

So, maybe it's an infection. I'll have to go off to the doctor's and see what they think. But I've got stuff to do, man! My parents are coming on Friday for their annual visit and the house and garage and the yard are still a wreck. Oh, calamity.

I need an actress who can play someone tough, but neurotic, and not in her twenties. Hmmm, that last one eliminates Jennifer Lawrence. Too bad. She's so awesome. I'll have to go with . . . Jodie Foster.

  1. Jodie Foster has made some great movies. Hopefully the pinkie feels better soon and everything is all clean as can be before friday.

  2. Go to the doctor!
    Tough and neurotic - you don't see that combination in people often.

  4. Ow! I've had problems with nails before but not with my poor pinkie. I hope you can get the nail taken care of soon.

    I love Jodie Foster. I think she would be a great pick to play you.

  6. Jodie Foster is a good pick for someone tough. I think a movie about my life would be pretty boring haha

    I slammed my thumb in a grill yesterday and the whole side is dark purple, so I guess I feel ya? Finger injuries are the worse for a writer :(

  8. Fingers have a lot of nerve endings in them so don't feel bad that it's really hurting. Jodie Foster is great for playing smart, strong women.

  12. Maybe Amy Schumer? She's making a very comfortable living at the moment from being neurotic and not in her twenties.
