I am the Countess, coo coo ca choo
Today’s entry is inspired by an embarrassing vignette that occurred last year over this movie. I was talking on the phone with my brother in Michigan……
”Oh,” he interjects “we finally saw that movie you are always talking about. You know, the one with only women in it." "Oh, the Women! Did you like it?” I asked.
“It was funny, and there was one of them that reminded us a great deal of you in fact”
(Heart skips a beat)
He then calls out to my sister in law to ask for the name of the woman ‘like me’. Meanwhile, my mind races. Which of them do I resemble? Mary? Miriam? Given my line of work, maybe the Mother?
In the background the sister in law shouts ”it was the Countess!”.
“Well,” he explains, “just about every line she said we’ve heard from you, and when she said them, we said, that sounds like Mike!”
But he is right, I can quote this movie word for word, line for line. And I do quote Countess the most. So he had me.
Which of the characters of the Women best captures you?
