I'll Be Your...

My friend and I got tickets to a movie premiere screening last night. A romantic comedy. Fairly predictable. Guess how it ends...

As we left the theatre, on the down escalator... my friend sighed and said, "I'm going to die alone."
I understand just how she feels. I turned to her and said, "No you won't. You'll have me - at least."

"No." she protested, "You'll marry Mr. Burns and I'll live in your back yard and be your old maid."

"Is that mandatory now? Are we assigning old maids to couples?"

You know. It's not a bad idea. Everybody needs somebody!!

It's been some time since I stopped by. Are you back together with Mr. Burns? Was the movie The Proposal?
And I'll definitely end up being someone's old maid, which stinks because I hate cleaning house.

Hi Song Lee!
Well, Mr. Burns and I are spending time together... nothing definate.

The movie was The Ugly Truth. Cute. pretty funny.

Oh... and my friend and I joked that she wouldn't be the maid - she'd be the Old Maid. We haven't determined exactly what that entails... but it's clear she wouldn't be the maid. Tee hee.

Hmm, yet another reason why I stayed away from Romance for a long while and still won't indulge much of what's out there.

[Btw, God did awesome things (to say the least) and 'he and I' got back together...It's been wonderful and wowing and I only have God to praise for it (the whole matter was way over my head otherwise)...so we're rebuilding in Christ!]

I don't think anyone should die alone. It's just too sad. I remember being told a story about an elderly married couple. The wife had a friend that was dying and that friend did not have a family. The husband accepted his wife's wish to go and take care of her friend, even though she would be away from him. I always hoped that if I ever married someone, he would be as understanding and selfless.

Dumpling... that is beautiful.

I want to be that good of a friend. I want someone to be that dear of a friend for me.

I'm all teary now! Thanks for sharing.
