I think I'm coming down with something.
I don’t know why, but suddenly I have an almost irresistible urge to watch romantic comedies. And not just any romcoms, but movies starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. One in particular.
It started this morning. I was in the shower, washing my hair when I wondered if You’ve Got Mail was available On Demand. I then started to plan my whole day around watching this movie later tonight. I was actually looking forward to getting back home tonight, making dinner and relaxing on my couch with this movie.
What the hell? Just yesterday I actually yelped when I saw an advertisement for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Finally, I would be able to watch Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiber in all their hotness battle it out in the comfort of my own home. Not 24 hours later, I am picking out a bottle of red and fantasizing about the meal I am going to enjoy with Tom Hanks. TOM HANKS!
I got out of the shower and decided I would work from one of my satellite offices today. Less the urge come over me again and this time I wasn’t able to smack myself back to reality. But my desire to see You’ve Got Mail would not desist. Instead, it only increased as everything I saw somehow reminded me of scenes from the movie. In line for my venti chai with soy I even found myself smiling as I remembered clever dialog from that stupid film.
Now my family has all sorts of home remedies for various illness. Most of them involve lots of clear fluids and layering on lots of clothing until you sweat out whatever it is that ails you. I'm wondering if this panacea will work for my current plague. Maybe I should just crawl back into bed and hide under my covers until whatever it is I caught passes.
