Sometimes when you are watching a movie or a show on TV, you wonder about some of the situations depicted and scoff "What are they going on about - something like that will never happen in real life. In any case, it will never happen to me!"
What do you do when some situation straight from a television series does happen in your own life? That's when realization dawns that inspiration for any art comes from real life. There are certain catch words and phrases which I have never heard being spoken outside of a television box. At least never heard them being used in the same context as on television. Yesterday, for the first time in my life, I actually used them - and yes, in the same context I have heard it being used a million times on television.
In a way it is disconcerting to know that what seems like a big thing to me is so common that they actually depict it on TV with actors. In another way, it is comforting to know that so many other people apparently go through similar situations and seem to come out of it fine. In my case though, I have no script dictating how the ending will be.
But isn't it the unpredictability of the outcome which makes life so much more interesting?
