Moving Thoughts Friday
















Every Friday I’m going to ask a question. The questions I choose might be ambiguous on purpose. The goal is to have you answer the question according to your beliefs, where you’re at in life or a circumstance that might have recently impacted you. The only thing I ask is that you provide an explanation for why you answered the way you did.











It’s my hope to understand you better through this and also to gain a greater understanding of humanity and how people make decisions.

Benjamin Button or Big?

  5. Okay. I absolutely LOVE this question. It's like, so simple, but so deep.

    The old man who grows young. The young boy who turns old.

    I'm more of a Benjamin Button gal myself. Don't want to wish a chunk of my life away, even if I think a certain "part" of it will be better than the current "part" I'm in now. There's no rush, you know? And I like that Benjamin got more youthful (which symbolizes energy and health) the older he got. That was a heart-breaking movie (in a good way).

  6. I seem to live in the forever state of being a teen, so I'll have to go with Big. ;)

  7. Big. Definitely Big. Reason? HOnestly, Benjamin Button goes places that unnerve me. The whole life issue and relationships and losing relationship becuase of age and death and ... yeah ... I get emotional :( so I'll stick with laughter to cover my weaknesses.

  9. Big, although it had some scenes I disliked.

    I have not seen BB. What is it about?

    Happy Weekend,

  10. I'm going with BIG since I don't know who the other is.

  11. Ooo boy. Well, I can't really remember BIG - it was during the eighties right? :0) I loved Benjamin Button. There were a lot of really good themes in that movie and although it kind of freaked me out at times, I enjoyed it. But seriously, Brad Pitt as an old man did nothing for me. Nothing. Angelina I hope you know what you're in for if you stick around.

  12. I still haven't seen Benjamin Button yet, so I have to choose Big. But one day I'm going to have to see the other!

  13. Big! I didn't watch Benjamin Button. The commercials didn't do it for me. :)

  14. Benjamin Button goes so much deeper than Big. Big is all about fun; Button is about... about??? Life and love and lightning strikes. I loved them both but I think I have to go with Benjamin - I'm more likely to re-watch that one at least at this point in my life.

  15. I choose Big. And that's because I have no idea who Benjamin Button is. :)
