“Yeah me too!!!”
Just like Russell Crowe in a Beautiful Mind seeing visions of people and actions that don’t exist, I see a man having a one way conversation limited to only three words.
Screaming at the top of his lungs a local man yells out in a thick Italian accent “Yeah me too!!!” “Yeah me too!!!” “Yeah me too!!!”
Projecting his voice louder than a jackhammer breaking up resistant concrete so it can be heard a few houses away even with the air-conditioning on.
I can say he sounds like a broken record but it is not broken. It is not perpetual and never ending as a broken record implies.
Sounding more like a cassette player set to auto-rewind and playing over and over through shoulder-high speakers is more descriptive. You know the kind, the old wooden ones that would vibrate spilling the cup of coffee that you placed on top of it.
This retired man from the pasta factory yells his 3 words in sets of 4 or 5 at a time.
The good news is he can have a regular conversation as well.
I wonder if I was challenged in the same way as this man what 3 words would I be stuck on.
If I can preprogram my brain for a time down the road where this could happen to me, I want my three words to be “You are beautiful.” Or 4 words, “Yeah you are beautiful.”
You are beautiful! You are beautiful! You are beautiful!
May I ask, what 3 words would you choose if your fate ends up with you screaming daily from a front porch?
Do share. After all, you are beautiful.
You are beautiful.
