It's Groundhog Day
I just realized it's Groundhog Day. It's not that I have any special memories attached to this day, but I have a lot of memories attached to the movie. When Pebbles was 12, she developed pneumonia and spent about twelve days total in the hospital. Of course, I stayed with her 24/7 and this was before the days of cable tv. The hospital had some sort of closed circuit tv and during our stay, it was playing this movie on continuous loop. It was like we were trapped within our own groundhog day - every day was the same. Reliving the same day. Day after day. Sort of life imitating art imitating life imitating art. Over and over again. Caught in some sort of double-helix dance with this movie.
I'm still under the weather, but trending upward. I expect to be back amongst the living tomorrow. I'm considering going to spin class just to free spin through the entire thing, but I'm unsure of what my cough will be like, so I think I'll just put that off until Monday.
