Last night, I went to the movies in downtown Brooklyn to see “Marshall” with my sister, Jocelyn. Chadwick Boseman did an amazing job, and it’s a truly compelling film about the first African American Supreme Court Justice and Sam Friedman, a local Jewish lawyer who’s never taken on a criminal case, defending Joseph Spell, a Black chauffeur, who is accused of sexual assault and attempted murder by Eleanor Strubing, a wealthy white socialite, in Connecticut during the 1940s.
Last night, I laid on my couch watching Dateline and before I could find out what (or who) killed Cory Lovelace, I fell asleep with a bloated stomach from a fully loaded Chipotle bowl, 2 slices of cheese pizza, and 2.5 glasses of Merlot. I woke up right when News 4 NY at 11 came on, and I had the urge to pee and pour another glass of wine. That’s when I noticed I had an alert on Facebook Messenger.
