♪♫ Where do I begin…

Ok how many of you remember that song?

♪♫Where do I begin
To tell the story of how great a love can be
The sweet love story that is older than the sea
The simple truth about the love she brings to me
Where do I start …

Ali MacGraw, Ryan O’Neal …

Do you remember weeping copiously throughout the movie?

Do you remember thinking, Love is like that, ahhhhggghhhh!

Yeah, 1970, and I was 11 years old? What was I doing watching a movie like that anyway?? It could only corrupt my already corrupted (based on my parents; based on my sister’s) idea of love!

What else? Andy Williams! (who sang the theme song) I LOVED Andy Williams!

Deep breath … ♪♫ Annnndyyyyy!!!!

(faints…)

Yeah I’m not crazy about him anymore, but I do remember feeling that way!

What else? She dies, you know. In case any of you have the audacity to want to watch the stupid movie…

On that note … the quickest blog post I have ever written.

(thank you Elephant in the Room for the writing prompt!)

    What you might not remember about that movie is that her doctor and her husband refused to inform her of her medical diagnosis. As a woman, they thought she couldn’t handle it and was better off just not knowing.

    Andy Williams? Seriously? 🙂
