It Looks Clear
That is a line from Pitch Black, starring Vin Diesel. It was possibly one of the first movies I ever saw with Vin in it. I like science fiction movies and this fits the bill for sure. I don't know if I would say that it is a good movie, but I do enjoy watching it. That ends up being an interesting thing in that Jules and I will often watch and rewatch certain movies over and over. This happens to be one of them.
Okay, way too much detail about an irrelevant thing. In the movie Vin has the ability to see in the dark and at some point someone asks him if the way they need to go is clear. Vin's response is to say that it looks clear. Someone is about to walk that way when all of a sudden a monster flies past them almost killing them. That character then says to Vin, I thought you said it was clear. The response from Vin is - I said it looks clear.
I've always had a thing for word play humor and that set of lines from the movie has always amused me and Jules and I have adopted it. We will often say to each other, well, it looks clear. And we both understand what that means. To the best of our knowledge it looks good, but who knows, we may very well be missing the monster ready to jump out and bite our heads off.
This is a frequent saying to each other when we leave hotel rooms. We will pack up all of our things and cart them back out to the car before doing a last walk around the hotel room. Generally around that time, once we think we have everything, we will both look at each other and state - well it looks clear.
Well this last weekend we were in the Long Beach, CA area and we both thought it looked clear. Loe it was with great disappointment that I discovered I left my only set of forms at the hotel. Ooops I lost my boobs! Ha! An unfortunate side effect of having detachable boobs! Sure they are convenient, but you might just accidentally leave them behind! Yikes!
Kindly, Jules called the hotel and asked if the maid had found a pair of prosthetic breasts. He said that he would check with house cleaning services. She then asked if he knew what she was talking about. He said he thought he did. She clarified for him that he was looking for a small pair of fake breasts. He said he would phone if he found anything. Guess what? He never phoned!
Do you know why? I suspect I do. The maid found them, and was probably a bit weirded out thinking she found somebody's sexual fetish play toys and threw them away!
Regardless, I no longer have them. Which is highly unfortunate as they were about $180. I really hate making such stupid mistakes! But whatcha gonna do? I thought it looked clear! Oh well. I actually really didn't use them all that much. They were not my primary go to, they were just something quick, simple, and easy to use when I dress in an in between mode. So.... I will replace them, but I don't think I will go with such expensive ones! I've seen some on Amazon at much more reasonable prices.
I will let you know.
In the meantime, if you happen to find a pair of lost breast forms roaming around Long Beach, CA, let me know. Ha!
It looked clear.
Well, how does it look now?
