Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

If you are a single and had a chance to spend your last few days with any one person, whom would you choose?  Do they know it or is it your special little secret?

In "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World", Steve Carell (I would say his character's name but isn't he ALWAYS Steve Carell?) finds himself alone after his wife leaves in a panic. He decides to take a road trip to reunite with his high school sweetheart. Accompanying him is a young British woman whom I can't recall her name but whom I know was in a couple of those Pirates of the Caribbean movies.  She throws a wrench in his plans, of course, because all good movies need to have a wrench thrown into somebody's plans.

What they discover is the unspeakable value of having someone to share your battles with.  When you have someone like that, you have to hang onto them.  If (you're single and) have someone like that in your space, are you acting on it?  If you're married and don't open up and share what's really on your heart and mind, isn't that the same as being alone?  Are you waiting for time to run out before you do or say anything?

Stop waiting for a crisis to come around before you express yourself.  Good reminder from a pretty good movie.
