The Tragedy of Being Earnest

Waiting to Exhale was on television a couple hours ago.

Didn't watch it because I'd rather shove a hot poker in my eye than watch most chick flicks, and I eventually settled on Blood Rayne II on On-Demand.

After I graduated from college, I worked for a literary agent for about 5 minutes, and one day, when going through the "slush pile" of unsolicited manuscripts, I came across one that was written in response to Terry McMillan's Waiting to Exhale.

Brilliantly, the manuscript was titled: Struggling to Inhale. Tragically, it was written with total sincerity.
