A few years back- Oh, I'd say four or five- this film came out and I read the review and thought, "yeah, I'd like to see that."|
So finally I get round to renting it. I put the disc in the machine and up it comes on screen and there, as dewy as the first rose of summer, is Winona Ryder and it hits me like- dood- this film is twenty years old if it's a day.
So how did this happen? How did that memory of reading the review (it's so fresh I can smell the newsprint) manage to get itself filed under "recent"?
Oh, I understand!
Only last Sunday...
Only last Sunday, I was driving to Knoxville and passed the Grace Fellowship True Believer Church and a new sign read "Our Tenth Year!"
and I thought about how it seemed like yesterday when the GFRBC was meeting in an old grocery store.
There's a child two doors down. I just said "hi" to her on my way back from the post-box. She's in the upper school, must be 14...15.
But it can't be Heena. Heena's only just been born. She's a babe in arms.
Oh, but it is!
my daughter (heather) hated that movie on general principles....
Yes, I can understand that.
I thought it was quite good fun....
It was worth the 20 year wait.
I know what you mean. It seems like yesterday that I was teaching my daughter to ride a bike and now she is driving a car. How did this happen to me?
When I dream about my kids- who are all in their 20s now- they always show up as littl'uns.
