8 Sentence Sunday #6

Posted May 18 2014, 7:30 am in , , , ,

From Catch Your Breath, Moira thinks she’s seem Jimmy O’Malley, but someone tells her that it was actually James Buchanan, who was new to the city. As she looks at all the couples at the event, her imagination wanders.

Sometimes she thought she was born in the wrong decade. If only she could be like Bogie and Bacall or Tracy and Hepburn.

Life in a black-and-white movie with witty banter and true love.

She wandered through the crowd looking for James Buchanan. Thinking back, she realized her imagination had simply run away from her again. Not every good-looking man was Jimmy. Maybe Mr. Buchanan was actually better looking. Plus, he probably had money.

    At times, I feel as if I was born in the wrong decade, or century for that matter. Her thinking is very realistic.

    Wonderful snippet that tells me much abut her. I think we’ve all had that “stuck in the wrong decade” feeling before. 🙂

    Nice. She’s living in a couple of dream worlds. Maybe Mr. Buchanan will make them come true?

    Now I can’t decide if I want to be Lauren Bacall in “To Have and Have Not” or Katherine Hepburn in “Desk Set” . . . tough choice! 😀

    Yes, we always think the past was better–but it had its own issues. I like the practical thought about money at the end!
