One of my all time favorite movie quotes is spoken by Navin R. Johnson (Steve Martin), in The Jerk:
I know we’ve only known each other for four weeks and three days, but to me it seems like nine weeks and five days. The first day seemed like a week and the second day seemed like five days. And the third day seemed like a week again and the fourth day seemed like eight days. And the fifth day you went to see your mother and that seemed just like a day, and then you came back and later on the sixth day, in the evening, when we saw each other, that started seeming like two days, so in the evening it seemed like two days spilling over into the next day and that started seeming like four days, so at the end of the sixth day on into the seventh day, it seemed like a total of five days. And the sixth day seemed like a week and a half. I have it written down, but I can show it to you tomorrow if you want to see it…
I’ve been on dates like that – only I’d have to substitute minutes for days. Seriously. The date is over and I feel an overwhelming urge to grab the shoulders of the stranger walking along side me and scream, “What day is it?!!” because I’m certain I must have lost several.
I don’t know about you, but something tells me this is a bad sign. Sigh.
