In my head I have a random conversation going something like this:
“Go ahead. Make my day!”
“Whachu talkin’ bout, Willis?”
“I’m saying you need to ask yourself…Are you feeling lucky today?”
“Tomorrow, after all is another day!”
“Are you talkin’ to ME?”
“Say hello to my little friend!”
“But, I don’t know nuthin’ ‘ bout birthin’ no babies, Miz Scarlett!”
“Well, maybe it’s a brain tumor!”
“It’s NOT a TOOOMA!”
Yeah, tell me the truth!
“The truth? You can’t HANDLE the truth!”
“But I see dead people.”
“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn!”
“Then beam me up Scotty!”
“Good night, John Boy!”
So, yes, I guess I do use movie or tv or other quotes. Sometimes when I don’t even think about it, they will randomly pop into my head and out of my mouth, uncensored and unfiltered. It’s like a geyser! They just spew forth with no rhyme or reason. It’s not like I could stop them even if I tried. I don’t even know I am going to say them sometimes. It’s like those little SBD farts…. Oops… there it goes again…Sorry! But they just kind of seep out and attack your senses when you least expect it. Sometimes not so bad but other times they send you reeling!
I think of myself as a fairly witty person. Of course my ex-sister in law used to. when I would say “I’m so witty!”, would counter with “Yes, but that’s only HALF true!” It took me years to figure out she was insulting me by calling me a half wit! I never claimed to be the brightest light in the harbor now did I? See? There I go again… Maybe that’s why she is an EX sister in law? Hmmmnnnn
I randomly find myself saying things in situations that have NOTHING at all to do with the movie they are from… like when I /we can’t solve a problem that’s being worked on I might pop up with “I think we’re gonna need a bigger boat!” Hmmmnnnn…. Are we going fishing here? Are we near water at ALL? No, but, it seems appropriate and more importantly FUNNY at the time! And you know me… I’m all about making someone laugh. It’s like a drug to me.
Or when I’m trying to get my point across and failing miserably at it I will sometimes say “Let me ‘splain” As in “Lucy, you got some ‘splainin’ to do!” (I used to love I Love Lucy). Am I Latino, or married to one? Or a fiery red head? Or is my name Lucy? Nope, but it just pops in the head so I HAVE to say it.
So, as a forewarning, lots of times, I write just like I talk. So, it makes sense in my HEAD when I’m writing it down and when I read it, but since YOU don’t know what the heck I’m thinking it may make absolutely NO sense to you whatsoever.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! And you can quote me on that! 🙂 Have a nice day ’cause otherwise, you know… shit happens….
