When Honey and I were younger (and by younger I mean post-18 but pre-marriage), he used to speak in terms of “Rocky”. Yes. That Rocky. “Yo Adrian!” He would always think about how his life or our relationship paralleled parts of that movie, and it drove me crazy! I finally told him, DUDE, I want to know what your thoughts are, not Rocky’s!
Fast forward 13 years and guess what I can’t stop doing?
Every time I hear something similar to a line or the way a word was said in a movie I’ve seen, Ta-Da! Out of my mouth it comes.
“You didn’t see ennnny-thing!”
“Chancho! I need some swetts…”
“Did you not tell them that they were the Lawrd’s chiips?”
“Whatever I feel like doing!”
“Oh, and no ship that’s not crewed by the damned and captained by a man so evil that Hell itself spat him back out could possibly have black sails, therefore couldn’t possibly be any other ship than the Black Pearl. Is that what you’re telling me?”
“When you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room. It’s for fun.”
“You’ll never shut down the REAL Napster!!!”
“This dude got dogs. I don’t do dogs… I had a real bad experience, man.” What happened? “I had. A bad. Experience. Damn it. “I’m” deaf.”
Bah-dum-dum! (cymbal crash)
Thank you! Thank you!! I’ll be playing two shows a night at the Jex Family Casino Lounge, dark on Sundays!
