So, maybe about a year ago, me and my youngest had a Stephen King marathon introducing her to some of my favorite Stephen King movies (which, really, is all of them), so, needless to say, she's become a fan - of the movies. So far, she's only read The Shining.

Aaaanyway, tonight, she's inviting her boyfriend over to watch Secret Window. I'm driving her to school and she says to me; "Mom, does Stephen King like his wife very much?"
I go, "They've been married for about 500 years, so, I would imagine so."
She thinks about this for a second and says; "I mean, I'm just saying he writes a lot about writers going nuts and murdering their families, don't you think?"
Me:(wanting to defend my idol) Well, I mean, not really, only like...a few times...
E: ...
Me:...Well, he did do a lot of drugs back in the day. He's much better now. :)

That reminded me of an old Mitch Hedberg line..."I used to do a lot of drugs...…...……….I still do, but I used to too."
