I hope that you all are familiar with the excellent movie,
'Beetlejuice'.
If you haven't seen it (or haven't seen it in a long while),
I highly recommend that you rent it,
(or get it from your local library)
and give it a watch.

There are many funny moments in the movie.
For those who you that have seen it,
I'm sure you have your own favorites.

One of mine is when Beetlejuice is
marrying the daughter of the family
and he's frantically searching his pockets
for the ring.

From his pocket he ends up pulling out
a severed finger with a ring on it.
So, he pulls the ring off the finger
and throws the finger down in the fireplace,
stating loudly,

"I tell you Honey, she meant nothing to me, nothing at all !"

I don't know why, but this morning I had a chuckle
remembering my personal Beetlejuice moment.

About 12 years ago I was playing baseball.
Normally I play centerfield. I'm very fast.
But, earlier in the game that day, I pulled my left hamstring.

So, rather than pulling me out of the line-up,
my coach asked me if I would mind playing first base.
I said "no" and played first base.
However, I never actually played first base before.
There's not a lot of running. I've seen people play it before.
So, it can't be too hard, right ?

Well, the other team's clean-up hitter (about 6'4" 200 lbs)
stroked a nice single to left field. He's now on first.

The next guy up is a lefty.
So, I'm playing off first base, deep in the infield.
I notice that the runner is getting too big a lead.
So, I sneak in behind him and rush to first base for
a pick-off throw from our pitcher.
My pitcher notices this from the corner of his eye
and fires a throw to first.

Well, never having done this before,
I had my feet in a totally wrong place.
The big runner dove into first base
and my legs at the same time.
I looked down to brace myself with my hands
and when I looked up
the hardball was one inch from my left cheekbone
travelling fast for it.

SMASH !!
It hit me square in the face and shattered my
cheekbone and my eyesocket.
One of my friends on the team
drove me to the emergency room of the local hospital
a couple of towns away.

By the time I got there,
I had gone into shock from the loss of blood internally.

At that time in my life, my girlfriend,
a dietician at that hospital,
was notified of me being in the emergency room.

When she walked into the emergency room
my baseball pants were down to my ankles and an extremely
gorgeous nurse was giving me a shot of pain killer in
the left cheek of my butt.
Oddly, when my girfriend saw my condition,
she started crying.

The truth is, she had never seen me like this.
I was always her rock, that she could depend upon
in times of trouble and the sight of me so injured truly shook her.

BUT, all I could think about at the time, was this gorgeous
nurse, my pants being down, and that scene
from Bettlejuice, and me trying to say to my girlfriend,
"I tell you Honey, she meant nothing to me, nothing at all."



True story.

What a gift when one can find the humor in tragedy. It turns into a cherished memory.

I love when that happens.

Yeah Beatlejuice has a lot of cool one liners that I caught on the rewatches.
