Well I certainly didn't hear "the meal his mama spent three hours making." My mother-in-law spent more like three days!

Here's my Thanksgiving Brokieism. It snowed a little on Thanksgiving Eve. So that day I told my sons they should go outside and play in it, have a snowball fight or sumpn. One of them said his shoes were leaking. The other suggested they could go out and play barefoot. I said, "Oh, yeah, that's a great idea. Good thinking." Then I realized I could follow that up with:

"You're a real thinker, there!"

This is perhaps a minor Brokieism... but when I carried the yams-with-marshmallows into the dining room on Thanksgiving I said.. "Well, here we are"  and tried to say it with a similar inflection as Jack when he brings in the turkey.

None of our Brokieisms are minor. It just seems as if this movie has had such an impact on so many of us that when we do certain things, like your Thanksgiving dinner, we just automatically think about Jack and Ennis.  :)

Yesterday I was talking to a co-worker that I hadn't seen in awhile because he's been out sick. When we ran into each other he said- I really missed you. Finally, I got the opportunity to say to him- "Sometimes I missed you so much that I could hardly stand it." I felt like Jack when he said it to Ennis.  :D


For how long? As long as we can ride it; ain't no reins on this one.

One day at work I was in the elevator when a colleague got on, wearing her coat.  I greeted her with "Well, look what the wind blew in!".  She didn't miss a beat, saying, "Yeah, it sure is windy today."  I decided against trying to explain to her that I'd never given a thought to the weather before I said that.  ;D

I was writing on another list I'm on, telling my story and concluded with

As Ennis says in "Brokeback Mountain, " "That's how come me end up here."  (I love that syntax.)

I didn't get any comments on it, but felt connected to myself and you anyway.  :)


BTW, this is one of my favorite threads in all of Brokiedom.
