“I’ve been busy” It’s like a grown up blogger’s mantra. “I’ve been busy. Busy. Busy. B-U-S-Y’ and time is never enough and all that, things happen. We grow and suddenly there’s no time for anything, or exhaustion takes over our beings and we’re drowning on a sea of commitments and things to do.
Or so is how I feel.
Ice Cream Cones
I know Elizabethtown is really problematic and all, and it perpetuates the Manic-Pixie Dream Girl and it’s even considered by some to be the worst movie ever made. But I Like it. I actually like the movie a lot. Maybe it’s because it mentions the main character’s father passing away, and maybe I watched it around the time my grandmother disease was starting to become more noticeable, and I could, kind of, relate to the plot. But I love it.
One of the quotes I love the most about the movie is the following
Drew – You’re kind of great, Claire. You do know that. Sort of amazing, even.
Claire – Oh, come on! I don’t need an ice cream cone.
Drew – It’s not an ice cream cone. What’s an ice cream cone?
Claire – You know. “Here’s a little something to make you happy. Something sweet that melts in five minutes.”
Ice cream cones.
So, in lieu of me being an adult, being all grown up and -of course- busy. Here, my friends, you have an Ice cream Cone.
