I am a sucker for a lot of things (jewelry, orchids, slapstick comedy, accents), but probably the biggest is anything having to do with animals. Especially books and movies on the subject of animals. My favorites are the horse stories of Marguerite Henry ("Misty", "Stormy" etc.), the dog stories of Jim Kierkegaard (much jollier than the other Mr. K), any "biography" of famous racehorses and, of course the high quartet of animal books: The Call of the Wild, Black Beauty, Greyfriars Bobbie and the Dog of Flanders. I can't even get into the literary merit of these things, because it doesn't matter. Most of the movies (especially Weep No More My Lady and The Black Stallion), I can't even watch with other people because I get all weepy. Don't even get me started on Old Yeller.
Anyone else as sad a loser as me? Do you have a favorite animal story?
You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...
