Teri is a good girl...
Okay, maybe she's *above* thievery and maybe she's just plain chicken, but either way, we love Teri Brown.
And even though she lost her nerve, and so this isn't really a tale of honest-to-gosh stealing, we have to share the story. Because this one's a hoot!
Yeah, okay... so I was working on a scene from Read My Lips, and I wanted to describe how the girl felt so emotionally and physically drained. I usually try not to start a sentence out with "I feel," but this line kept running through my head. "I feel like a two ton heavy thing."
It fit and I was tired of thinking about it so I used it. You know that feeling you get when you want to finish a chapter and can't, so you just stick whatever in.
A few days later my husband was listening to Queensryche, and there it was at the beginning of a song-- I feel like a two ton heavy thing!
We haven't listened to that album since the early 90's and it was still sitting in my brain. Taking up space. Maybe that's why I can't ever remember where I put my car keys! My hard drive is filled with random song lyrics.
LOL! Sure, Teri... whatever you say. But we know the truth. You're a secret Queensryche freak. Admit it!
