Why is that when you find one of your favorite movies on television and it comes to the absolute saddest part and you're getting ready to have yourself a nice little cry, why is that every member of your family, though they were all in other parts of the house just moments before, decide that they must speak with you at that very moment. (Fried Green Tomatoes, when Ruth dies. "Let her go. Miss Ruth was a lady and a lady always knows when to leave." sob)
Why is it that when you're about to start a more sensible eating plan (Hello Weight Watchers!) you feel like you're starving every second and could eat every morsel of food in the house?
Why is that in a really good western, the good guy has to die?
And finally, why is it that I always get sick on the weekend and never during the week so that I can have some time off?
