Imagine going on your first date with Chris. You’ve known each other for a while; you went to school together but lost touch when he left Boston. You always regretted not going out with him sooner, so you aren’t going to miss your chance this time around. He arranged for a private chef to come to his place and make dinner for the two of you. You spend the evening getting reacquainted over good food and even better wine. The only thing that disappointed you was when you left without a goodnight kiss, but even that feeling didn’t last. Before you could get very far, he ran after you to tell you he loves you.
Hi - after rewatching TTOI last week I started thinking about Malcolm's career choices (among other things) and why he didn't decide to become an actual politician. He's intelligent, probably charming enough to get votes whilst still being able to act ruthlessly when necessary, and has at least some sense of morality. I suppose if his previous job was in journalism or something similar then that might explain why he got into dealing with the media. I don't know.
