post-it quote

I'm doing laundry, which is exciting, I know, and not really worth mentioning all on its own, but I found a great quote in my pocket, so here I am! I'm always writing notes of things (titles of books, stuff I want to look up) and putting them in my pocket -- or on the days when I am sadly lacking a pocket, folding them up and putting them in my bra. (this is not ideal! paper is sharper than you'd think.) ANYWAY. Today's pocket cleaning netted this quote from Preston Sturges' Palm Beach Story. This is nerdy billionaire John D. Hackensacker III (Rudy Vallee) speaking to soon to be divorced Gerry (Claudette Colbert) about her (allegedly) no-good but very tall husband (Joel McCrae). It's delivered with such matter of fact resignation that it makes me laugh every time.

That's one of the tragedies of this life, that the men who are the most in need of beating up are always enormous.

  1. That quote is so perfect. It fits. Everything. I am so happy for pockets, and I suppose ladies underthings, when they hold such spot on bits of simplistic wisdom.

  2. hee hee. I'm glad you liked it. It DOES fit everything.

  3. It's perfect, b/c it's true. That's one of the few Sturges movies I haven't seen.

    I think that's my June metaphor. Now I need one for July.

  4. Oh, it's a crazy one. There are a number of his movies that I haven't seen yet... I should get on that.

    As for your July metaphor... if you figured out June's on July 1, it looks like you've got 31 days to figure out what works for July!
