Slow and Steady

[ Feeling Beachie a breath of fresh air on a gloomy day. She weathers the storms when the tide roles in and always brings the sun with her positive glow. Hilary asks “How did you & Mr. MBA meet?”]

I walked into the bar, hungry eyes was playing in the background, and he grabbed me on the dance bar.

He looked at me ” This is my dance space! And this is your dance space!”

We began to dance and I looked into his eyes and exclaimed, “Your wild!”

If by now the dialogue of this conversation seems familiar…It is!  A mash of several of my favorite scenes from Dirty Dancing. If life was only full of such romance!

Our story is a little different! I met him the first year of  university at a bar over a pool table. We had a few beers, argued over music, and became friends. It was over the years that we grew as friends, and at one point moved forward from friendship to relationship.

A relationship over slow and steady that won a race to the hot and heavy! The rest was history…

What is your  favorite movie scene? And what does it mean to you?

I am the head clown in my family's circus act! Most days I can be seen with my noise stuck in a good book, spilling coffee down my shirt, and aimlessly wandering about wondering where did I put my glasses.

  1. First date with my ex was to see Young Frankenstein. Now there was an omen. Second was to see then President Ford speak. In between my name went forgotten, but not that of my roommie. Another omen. I’m not good with reading omen signals.

    I digress… favourite scene from a film… Sheesh, this is hard… probably when Idgie goes and fetches Ruth and takes her out of an abusive relationship in Fried Green Tomatoes. Idgie is my hero!

  2. Oh, I think that a guest post by Mr. MBA would be great! It is so funny, I was reading the start of your post, saying, this sounds so scripted and like a movie…. Guess I have to watch dirty dancing again :) Love that movie.. I am so drawing a blank with movie scenes…. I think I need more coffee!

  3. My favourite movie scene of all time was near the end of Love Actually, when the writer leaves Christmas dinner to go to Portugal to propose to his housekeeper. That movie is FULL of awesome scenes, but that one is my all time favourite :) I might have to watch it again, today!

  4. Holy cow. I’ve never once considered my favorite movie scene. I’d reckon it would be from Philadelphia, with all its wordless beauty. Probably the scene that’s moved me most ever was the one of Tom Hanks in his hospital bed and his brother joining him. *sniffle* So much sadness and comfort in that moment.

    I wrote an entire paper on one scene from Wayne’s World, but it didn’t quite have the emotional significance. ;)

  5. There’s a Finnish movie called “Prinsessa” about a delusional woman who thinks of herself as coming from a royal family and insists that everyone in the mental institution cal her “Princess”. The scenes are all great, it’s hard to choose one because it would only mean like I’m blind to the rest of them. This movie means a great deal to me. It tells me that I can be who I want to be, as long as I don’t get to do any harm to others. Very inspiring. A must-watch.

  6. See, now that to me is the ideal way to fall in love. To meet a guy, become friends, and realize that the friendship is even deeper than you ever thought. :) Lovely.

  7. So many movies! First a romantic one: I love when Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth finally get together in Pride and Prejudice (Keira Knightly and the velvety baritoned Matthew McFayden).

    Next a funny one: I love when Walt Whittaker is tied up by the lead Russian in The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming. One of the funniest movies ever.
