I only know mother went to the Academy Awards because I saw her on TV, without a date and wearing a black chiffon dress I didn't know she had (which means she just bought it). Chloe saw it too, we looked at each other in silence, both of us thinking the same thing: "sure, why not?"
When I was younger she always wanted to take me with her but I refused. When I finally said yes one of the nominees for best supporting actress ended up spilling her red wine all over my pastel pink Prada dress. Again, I'm not naming names but it was eight years ago tomorrow. Million Dollar Baby won the award for best picture. If you really want to get drunk, I guess that's all the reason you need.
