I have been known on occasion to Howl at the Moon..........
The Post Title was said by Crash Davis in one of my very favorite movies......Bull Durham. (coincidental? heh).
This movie includes one of those memorized lines that I have embedded in my Being. I loved hearing Kevin Costner say it to Sarandon......Damm, I wanted her back then....
When she asked him what he believed in, Crash responded,(sans the graphic),
"Well, I believe in the soul, the Man and Woman, the small of that woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap."
"I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter."
"I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days."
Tell me it's not deeply moving on some rarely plumbed level.....and I'll tell you that you'll never understand. Heh, it's a line that ExP would think sounded contrived....that "Nobody" actually talks like that.......
I've always loved it because I Do talk like that. A perfect example of ADD Passion..
That's who I am, and if you don't understand it, or aren't drawn to it.....well, you never will be. Some things, and some People are best experienced in small doses.
I enjoy me now. I really mean it when I say that I amuse myself. I hope I occassionnally amuse you too....Oh, that's why I didn't take that drink earlier tonight.....because I like myself too much. I'll drink a bit, socially now and again, but right now I'm just not ready.
Hmmmmm, but the.... "and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days."?
I believe in those again......
