i read a tweet about a new yorker article about you
“what was that called?”
because of winn dixie
“who the hell is winn dixie what did he have to do with it?”
i watched this with my little brother and my grandparents and my grandpa has rapidly declining dementia and can’t stop talking about this. he keeps asking what it was called and then goes “so good, so sad” and then yells and asks us what it was called again lol. but every time he asks he only has the highest praises for it. so 10/10 rating from the man who doesn’t know who winn dixie is

fun anagram! if you rearrange the letters in the woman in the window, it spells "alfred hitchcock's rear window (1954)".
