“Post Cards from the Edge” (2.0)

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:11 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the (not to sound like a broken record), deep, deep, uninterrupted, azure skied, golden sun led, wicked, wicked cold island of Nantucket! ‘Tis good to be with you and yours once again, telecasting LIVE from ‘down on the docks’ of ye ‘ole Hyannis Harbor; Sunday, The Fifth Day of March, 2017.


Per the captioned title to this trite ‘message in a bottle’, Sea Cape Cod would wish to offer an hilarious quote from the film, “Post Cards from the Edge”, circa 1990. This true Hollywood gem stars, among many, many other great actors, Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine. A mother and daughter in Los Angeles who have an exchange regarding “Suzanne’s” (Meryl Streep) drug problem.

“Doris” (Ms. MacLaine), with sense of greatest humor, tells the tale of our warped memories; and the sad fact the negative ones tend to stick out more than his/or her positive polarity…

Have a great Sunday y’all!

Doris: “Will you please tell me this awful thing I did to you when you were a child?”

Suzanne: “Okay, you want to know? Do you?”

Doris: “I want to know, tell me!”

Suzanne: “Okay, FINE! From the time I was 9 years old you gave me sleeping pills!”

Doris: “That was over-the-counter medication, and I gave it to you because you couldn’t sleep.”

Suzanne: “Mom! You don’t give children sleeping pills because they can’t sleep!”

Doris: “They were not sleeping pills! It was store bought, and it was perfectly safe!” Now don’t blame me for your drug-taking! I don’t blame my mother for my misfortunes or for my drinking!”

Suzanne: “Well, you don’t even acknowledge that you drink. How could you possibly blame your mother for something you don’t even do? Remember my 17th birthday party? When you lifted your skirt up in front of all those people? Including that guy, Michael.”

Doris: “I did not lift up my skirt, it TWIRLED UP! You only remember the bad stuff, don’t you? What about the big band that I got to play at that party? Do you remember that? No! You only remember that my skirt accidentally TWIRLED UP!”

Suzanne: “And you weren’t wearing any underwear.”

Doris: “Well…”

Now you be good to one another…
