Contextual clues arguably play one of the most important roles in human understanding.
In telling a story from another genre, the context of the story is displaced. Subsequently, our clues on what to feel, how to interpret, and so forth are likewise altered. Using the entirely boring narrative of waiting for the laundry machine, we can magnify the basic emotions of the story — indecision that comes from waiting — through a genre shift. Explaining the same narrative in the form of a man on his wedding day conveys the universality of a certain set of emotions that according to context scale up and scale down.
…So what I’m trying to say is that if you can’t decide whether to go back home or stay to wait for your laundry, you’ll probably end up wondering whether or not to bolt or stay at the altar…
It’s the same feeling…right?
