my back-up drive

September 26, 2007

We’re watching TV in bed and a trailer for One True Thing comes on and we give each other knowing looks because I’m a sucker for that kind of film. I say to Rama, “I’ve seen that.”

“We saw it together!” he exclaims.

“Oh, we did?” I say. “Did I cry?”

    heehee…this sounds like me and hubby, except he’s the one who needs the back-up drive =)

    I can relate to the memory loss. Husbands are the best! (Of course, he can’t remember to shut cabinet doors…we’re quite a set)

  4. tracy says:

    ditto! but in the reverse. im the one that always remembers what we watch.

  5. Kim says:

    I think I cried through it also. (:

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
