Lately one particular line from a movie keeps playing over and over in my brain. It's said by Shirley MacLaine's character Ouiser Boudreaux in Steel Magnolias and goes like this....
'I'm not crazy. I've just been in a very bad mood for 40 years!"
Sometimes lines just pop into my head like that randomly and I can't think for what reason. It's so weird, because I can go and see a movie and walk right out of it and not be able to recall a single line at the time, perhaps ever. And then 20 years later they come back to me. (I've told my kids to enjoy me NOW, because Alzheimer's is gonna get me, but I don't know if my teenagers are listening)
This particular line is how I feel lately. I've been sick since the 22nd of Jan. Been to the doctor 4 times, Emergency twice, had X-rays and CT scans, been put on a drug regime, referrred to a specialist, seen a specialist, going back to the specialist. I am so OVER it.
But I am getting better!
But my sense of humour well and truly deserted me in my hour of need on certain days. Please come back to me - you make life bearable. And never, ever leave me again.
And because I really like a picture with each post -
Í'm gonna grab a copy from the video store and watch it this weekend with my mum who arrives tonight for a visit. I doubt she's ever seen it and I think she'll relate to lots of the lines in it.
Incidentally, here's a link to quotes from the movie - Steel Magnolia quotes. Google is amazing isn't it!
Ciao for now x
