Sleepless in Central Oregon...

I have a movie that crops up at appropriate times throughout my life. It seems every time I need some clarity on a situation, Sleepless in Seattle mysteriously appears on TV.

It first happened back in my very early 20's when I was engaged to a guy I loved but we were definitely bad for one another. We fought like cats and dogs. It was not good. This first time I was with my then-fiance and we saw it in the theater. The whole time I watched that movie I realized that I was going to have to call off my engagement.

And it's been like that ever since. Once I would start dating someone I would watch that movie and see if it passed the SIS test. Some didn't make it. Some did. But it's been a pretty good guideline as to how things are going to go.

The SIS test...
So imagine my surprise when that movie came on the other day. And I realized something that I really hadn't thought of before. I was Rebel's version of Walter...

A sad realization, true. But just like Walter, I don't want to be someone that anyone settles for.

So it's best that we went our own ways.

And hopefully someday I'll find my Sam and I'll be his Annie...
