Mr. Cellophane is visible to the women in his league, who pine because he looks right through them.
I had that thought quite awhile ago, but it came to mind again because I was listening to Samantha Who? in the kitchen just now while I was doing the dishes and actress Melissa McCarthy’s character, Dena, talked about her dog, Mr. Cellophane. I loved the cast and characters of Samantha Who?, especially Christina Applegate, who played Samantha; Jean Smart, who played Samantha’s mother; Jennifer Esposito, who played Samantha’s evil friend, Andrea; and McCarthy. The premise that an amnesiac can come back as a nicer person and have some cleaning up of her past to do was creative and poignant. Something similar happened to our veterinarian’s son, who was a very young child in the 1965 when we first began to bring our animals to be treated by his father. (What can I say? We live in a small town and are loyal.) He was a forest ranger and thus in the forest during a storm. A bolt of lightning hit a tree and a good chunk of it fell on him.
Ironically, I hear thunder nearby and it has just started to pelt down rain, so that’s it for now.
