Theme Building

Using any excuse to try to be bold...

Informal witnessing is pretty tough for me...  and I reckon most people, I think.

When I first saw the trailer for Amanda Seyfried/Justin Timberlake's movie In Time I thought it was so cool:

"This is my daughter, my wife, and my mother-in-law"... and all three women looked 25 years old.

At the time I thought it could be used to witness...

Then last night saw the movie, and seeing that it was a typical worldly movie (PG-13) and a B-movie at that, I thought "maybe not".

Today, though, a co-worker passed by and I said in our brief "how's it going conversation":

"Hey, you know that Justin Timberlake movie, In Time?"

"Yeah, I heard about that!"

"We saw it last night...  pretty cool concept... no one ages past 25.  The dialogue was a bit juvenile.  But the concept reminded me of the Bible... since it says death will be no more, and people will live forever on the earth...  that's probably what it will be like!"

So the conversation went on in a friendly manner for another 25 seconds or so and we parted ways.

I was kind out of breath at the effort... but hey, at least I tried to say something!
