M. O. U. C.

1 Dec

I had an epiphany yesterday.

An epiphany is a Moment of Unusual Clarity – with apologies to The Princess Bride, which you simply must watch for some great, campy fun.  Yes, it was a book first, but how can you resist? “Youngster” Cary Elwes (“As you wiiiiiiish”) and swashbuckling Mandy Patinkin (“You seem a decent fellow.  I hate to kill you.”) lead a stellar cast including Robin Wright (“What about the R.O.U.S.es?”),  Wallace Shawn (“You’re trying to kidnap what I’ve rightfully stolen!”),  Chris Sarandon (“I’ve got my country’s 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder…”), Christopher Guest (“You’ve been chasing me your whole life only to fail now?…How marvelous.”), and Andres the Giant (“I didn’t mean to jog him so hard.”).  And let’s not forget Miracle Max and his wife (Billy Crystal and Carol Kane)…. or a young Fred Savage (“Is this a kissing book?”) and his cantankerous granddad Peter Falk (“Keep your shirt on and let me read.”).

Now, where was I?  Oh, yes, my M. O. U. C.

Well, the fact is, I’ve forgotten it.  Poof! Gone, just as quickly as it came.

And that’s okay.  It happened.  Like the other M.O.U.C.s in my life, if it happened once, it will happen again.  The next time, it will be stronger and more powerful, and I’ll be able to make at least part of it stick and put it to good use.

For now, I’ll wait until it comes to me again.  I’m content with that.

    Sounds like my present life. *grin* Things show up there and just as quickly..disappear into the ether. 🙂

      You, too? Am I contagious?

      Thanks for writing!

        Nope. I’m the Typhoid Mary in this soup. 🙂
