Sweet, sweet movie gave me hope.

I watched a really sweet movie over the weekend. I was surprised how good it was. I watched it twice. It was about the growing relationship between two divorced people. They both had a daughter just going off to college and they talked about what that felt like to them. It really was like watching a documentary, only in a movie version. It was honest, funny, and real. She was a massage therapist and he was a TV show historian. Enough Said was the name of the movie.

It gave me hope that there is someone out there for me and he will be nice, and not be so busy there's no time for me. It will be like there has been a placeholder in his life, and he's been waiting for me to fill it. And vice versa. We will be each other's placeholder for love. Real love. The really nice kind.

When I find this person, that will be my six and I'll write about it. I have the six, now I just need the backstory..."Real love. The really nice kind."

And he will call me Sugar.
