Last night while on Facebook, there was a post that caught my eye. I actually ended up sharing it. The meme asked to name a movie quote that gives away the title without actually mentioning it.
It was fun to read the comments and I realized reading these one liners made me smile. Made me smile and remember. Times of our lives are marked by movies and by music.
As I read comments, memories of where I was and who I was with came into my mind. It is an interesting journey when you stop and think of things like this. Someone mentioned the need for speed. Of course, that is Top Gun. Great movie for eye candy there. It’s amazing any lines were remembered by women. Hubby and I saw that movie after a get away to a bed and breakfast in the mountains in San Diego. We had a nice breakfast and were lingering over the table talking to each other and to the owner of the bed and breakfast. She asked what we had planned next and we realized that we had planned on going to a movie that started in thirty minutes and we were forty minutes away. We grabbed our bags and threw them into our car and raced down the mountain. Luckily the highway patrol was nowhere to be found and we actually had time to get popcorn and find a seat and see some of the previews. I will always remember that time. I think my heart was racing so hard from the trip down the mountain that the scenes in the movie were easy to take.
I was amazed at the response this post got on Facebook. But, as I mentioned before, people begin to think of favorite lines of movies and it begins memories of several other movies. Those that we remember lines from, are those closely tied to events, times and people in our lives. They were usually the great movies we have seen, not those that we struggle to remember the name of the movie we saw last week.
Some of my fondest memories are those I have of watching movies with my girls and hubby. Those are the times we have snuggled on couches under blankets, eating popcorn and junk food while suspending reality for a few hours.
What are some of your favorite movies? I love Hook, Beauty and the Beast, all the Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, most of the old musicals, and the list could go on and on.
How about you? Thanks for stopping by today. Cathi (DAF)
