I was watching “Forest Gump” again. Yip, you’re right, I can’t get enough of a good thing. Have you ever noticed in the movie how big the young Forest Gump’s ears are. Quite striking. Recently I saw an old school photo of myself, and guess what, enorrrrmous ears.
I don’t think there’s a child or adolescent who hasn’t at some stage complained about big ears. Must have something to do with our stages of development. But I’m digressing now. What I really wanted to quickly share was that the youthful Forest Gump’s ears, when I saw them, reminded me of what Howard Hughes once said about Clark Gable: “That man’s ears make him look like a taxi-cab with both doors open.” What an image! I just had to smile when I made the connection.
By the way, just in case you think there’s a nasty critical streak in me, I’ve still got big ears, I just feel a whole lot better about them at this stage of my life. 🙂
