What’s your story... in 40 characters or less

Affluent house. Volatile home. Good childhood. Wonderful siblings. Unrequited loves. ‘Almost’ normal looking. Alas ‘The uncanny valley’!

There’s a scene from ‘Starship Troopers’ that I remember fondly.

It was the infantry taking a unisex shower with no partitions… (no one was phased; certainly no one batted any eyes.)

Their was a guy at first blush being too inquisitive, but when tested, he replied:

‘I’m gonna be a journalist’

‘This is what we do, right?’

And he added:

‘So, c’mon let’s go around the room’.

The movie, has a following, it has respect in the Sci-Fi genre. And the scene makes for good character development.

So I was thinking like that.

Abusive childhood. Supershitty. Abusive relationship after abusive relationship. Homeless but not carless. True love. True heartbreak. Perfect life that didn’t last.
