Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


You complete me

Funny how a movie brings up strong emotions.

Jerry Maguire.

*shaking my head*

Army of Dad and I had been dating about four months when that movie was at the dollar show in Killeen. We decided to go. We both like sports, it was about a sports agent. Win, win. Right? Ohmigod, no.

Little did we know that it was about a sports agent developing a heart and dating a single mom. Oh gees. I was a single mom at the time. Parts of the movie have Cuba Gooding Jr.'s character explaining to Tom Cruise's Jerry Maguire that you don't mess around with single moms unless you have honorable intentions.

I wanted to crawl under the theater seat as this was unfolding. I kept getting these little 'knowing' looks and as soon as the movie was over I began apologizing. I didn't know it was like that. Sure, he says, you didn't know. *note the sarcasm*

He still doesn't believe me all these years and two children later.

Just saw the movie on TNT and it made me remember all of that. Thing is, he still has me at Hello.

    But, no pain meds when bringing new life into the world. We wouldn't want you to scream in pain when you pass something the size of a watermelon out an opening the size of a walnut.

    :) Thanks to Carol Burnet for that description. And, thanks to Tom Cruise for being hot. Would be better if he didn't open his mouth outside of his dialog.
