When Harry Met Fucking Sally and blew my mind..

On a long flight recently, vodka and coke in hand, belly hurting from laughing so hard and tears streaming down my face from crying like a little bambino, I watched ‘When Harry Met Sally.’ They say in life you encounter thunderbolt moments (Wayne says he had one when he saw me at a wedding and realised he really liked me. Nowt to do with the LBD I was rocking like..) anyway, I recently had one. A huge one. One that almost metaphorically speaking, threw me from the plane. What a bloody film.

Genuinely blew my mind. I literally don’t know where to begin spilling my ink: my mind is racing as I write this. It’s one of those films, that I think everyone should be forced to watch (ok well maybe not forced but you catch my drift.) Remember shitty PSE at school (do kids still have that?), well that’s where it should be shown. Disney romance is all fair and well, but let’s be brutal. It’s BS innit? Girl thinks she’ll meet boy and live happily ever after.. until boy gets cold feet and dumps girl – hey it’s worked out ok, we ended up getting married, so I guess I forgive him. But seriously, come on, this is so the shit that kids need to watch. Maybe just minus the sex bit.

This bloody masterpiece clearly demonstrates the line between love and hate, that appearances can be deceptive and how love can be very clearly staring you smack bang in the face, for years and you never really notice it..

Not to mention that platonic relationships can form the most amazing romantic relationships and how true love, is almost always worth the wait.

I laughed, I cried, I wanted to lean into my screen and punch Harry in the head for being such a dick and shake Sally for being an utter little bitch. And still, after sharing the highs and lows, they still get it on. Real life grit, that shit.

I’m always late the party, always. But this one, this was worth waiting for, even for a die hard romantic like me who loves all the Disney BS, I wish my 30 year-old-recently-dumped- down-on-herself-being had watched this.

It’s all about being patient.. and good things come, to those, that wait…………………………….like When Met Sally… watch it!
