Into the Belly of the Beast

“How interested are you in feminism?” Dan asked, while I was putting some dishes away.

“Very,” I said, noncommittally.

“I’m happy to hear you say that,” he said, “because I have a movie on Tivo that explores the very roots of feminism.”

I flashed him my look. The one that says, “Look, Buddy, I’m not to be fooled or cajoled.”

“What is it?” I asked dryly.

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” he revealed, grinning.

Luckily, I had work to do, so I was only mildly aware of the sights and sounds of the Angelina Jolie classic. However, I did notice that when Lara hit the shower in the nude, Dan commented, “Now here is where the real feminism begins.”
