There is a phenomenal scene in "American Beauty" when Lester (Kevin Spacey) is trying to reason with his wife, Carolyn (Annette Bening) about their meaningless material wealth. He tries his best to seduce her and inadvertently almost spills beer on the couch. Check out the clip:

I often think of this scene and am terrified of turning into this. The tragedy of it all is that I think we have no choice in this country. Just last night Tom and I had a discussion about ‘bucking the system’ and not ‘following along with everyone else’. We were also sipping Starbucks at Target.

You can’t win!! ITS JUST A COUCH!
