If there’s a load you have to bear
That you can’t carry
I’m right up the road
I’ll share your load
If you just call me
Call me (if you need a friend)
This weekend an impromptu get together happened and thankfully Mother was well enough to watch W so that I could leave him with her for one night away. I drove three hours in the rain and then I sat on the floor with some of my most treasured friends and talked until it was the next day.
You know how there are some people that just restore you? These are those people. The next morning we all remarked that we had the best night’s sleep that we had had in ages. Maybe this happened because we were just plain exhausted, or maybe it happened because we unburdened ourselves of all of the chatter in our minds. And when you tell your problems to your friends things just don’t feel as heavy any more.
Of course zaniness happens and you find yourself talking about who would play you in a movie and who would play your friends. And then you find yourself casting yourself as the characters in favorite movies from your childhood and the next thing you know photoshop is up and running and well, someone ends up as Dolly. (obviously) It was a great weekend.
So let’s bring back one of my all time FAVORITE questions to muse on – Who will play you in the big screen version movie of your life? Who will play you in the Lifetime movie version? I’ll weigh in on casting in the comments.
