Wild and Crazy Guy!

In a wild and crazy mood and since I have a bit of time to play around with words, I decided to put together a short story about a road trip with a stop at a restaurant for a bite to eat. However, to add some comedy to the scenario, I inserted movie quotes as the response to various scenes and/or questions. Hope those of you following my antics get a kick out of it!

But before I get into that, picture this which will get you ready for what is about to follow:

You are talking to your lover, wife, or even the clerk in the super market who is giving you a hassle and you have just about had it so you turn and look at her and say:

“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”     (GONE WITH THE WIND)

See where I am going with this?

Have you ever been on a road trip and even though your GPS gave you directions that were to take you to where you wanted to go, upon arrival at the so-called designated location, it does not look or feel right, so you get out of your car, look at your mate and announce:

“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore!” (THE WIZARD OF OZ)

OK, you finally made it to the St. Augustine Lighthouse (you have been wanting to visit it for years) and since you promised yourself that you would climb all 219 steps that lead to the top, even though you are completely bushed by the time you get there – you still have enough strength to shout out at the top of your lungs:

“Made it, Ma! Top of the world!”  (WHITE HEAT)

Back to the road trip. You have made it to the restaurant and due to your companions’ response to something you said, when your waitress appears, you announce:

“I’ll have what she’s having.”  (WHEN HARRY MET SALLY)

Later, after enjoying your lunch – you are sitting conversing with the people at the table next to you and they ask you what you do for a living. You announce:

“We rob banks!”  (BONNIE AND CLYDE)

Your guests are flabbergasted with your comment and so you reply:

“Well, nobody’s perfect!”  – SOME LIKE IT HOT

Time to leave and before you can even hand your receipt to the cashier, she says:

“Show me the money!” (JERRY MAGUIRE)

You pay her but as you are both walking out the door, you find yourself looking back at the cashier and saying:

“I’ll be back!” – THE TERMINATOR

Until next time!

About iglengel

Welcome to my blog: I retired in September of 1996 after twenty-five years as an Underwriting Manager (and one year with a smaller insurance company) and have written blog postings on the website Retirement-online.com prior to setting up this Word Press free site. Having retired almost twenty years ago I have experienced my own retirement transition. I survived and you will too. Oddly enough, now that I have more time, I am discovering various things about myself that I would not have imagined myself doing in retirement. Why does it take so long for, we as individuals, to stop and think about ME!? Join me as I share with you some of the shenanigans we have been up to since retiring. Retirement is and can be a whole lot of fun. Welcome to my site – remember – retirement is not the destination we are seeking – it is the journey! I encourage you to visit often, provide comments, ask questions and add your own insights. We are all on this journey together.

  2. Well done! And I knew all of the movie quotes. Lots of fun. I’m tweeting it out.

  3. I would agree that you are a wild and crazy guy, but “You can’t handle the truth!” (Know what move that’s from?)
