The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

October 16, 2013
This is why I can't wait for Christmas!



     I fell in love with this trailer the first time my friend Spivey (yes, that's his real name) showed it to me. Convinced that it was a novel, I searched Amazon for a copy of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty but was shocked to find out that the movie is actually based on a very famous short story by James Thurber that first appeared in The New Yorker. The story is so well known that the main character, Walter Mitty, even got a spot in the dictionary honoring his avid day dreaming and distraction from the world: Mittyesque. Can't wait to see the film adaptation!
