Rainman with a side of Gone with the Wind
I think that I channel a bit of Rainman.
You know…the Dustin Hoffman character in that movie with Tom Cruise (before he was a couch jumper psycho)…
Last night while sewing, I was almost done with Madeline…I mean ALMOST! I went into the kitchen to iron what I had just sewn…I looked at the clock…and it said 9:59. I then realized that my entire house was already asleep. Immediately I had this feeling in me, almost overwhelming, that told me that it was bedtime and I had to stop. I LITERALLY felt myself thinking…”OK Dianne, time to go to bed. It’s 9:59. 9:59. Time to go to bed. 9:59.”
And as God is my witness (insert vision of Vivian Lee standing at the end of “the” scene here) I will never leave something THIS CLOSE to being finished at the end of the night again!
