Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

June 6. “Did you like the movie we watched last night, Button?”

“You mean Everybody’s Fine?”

“What other movie did we see but that?”

“It was a simple and nice story. Something that happens in most families. De Nero was fantastic. He carried the movie on his shoulders.”

“I liked it too because I stayed awake throughout the movie. My elder daughter actually asked the DVD lending library to send a romcom and this is what they sent instead.”

“What’s a romcom?”

“A romantic comedy.”

“But this wasn’t a romantic comedy!”

“No, it wasn’t. Some slip-up, I guess, on their part.”

“Julie and Julia was also a smart film.”

“I loved the concept but it looked too dowdy. Do you know what I mean?”

“Meryl Streep was too good.”

“I saw a film of hers years back called The French Lieutenant’s Woman. That’s one more film I clearly remember till this day. Scene by scene.”

“And Mamma Mia, the Movie?”

“She was mind-blowing. And that energy she exuded? And, that too, at her age!”

“What’s age got to do with anything. Like Dost says—age is in the mind. It’s just a number! You’re as young or old as you think.”
