[♫ NOW PLAYING ♫] I can(t) do without you

This morning my three-year-old and I are watching one of my favorite (and now hers) childhood movies, Calamity Jane. It’s pretty obscure and when I talk about it most people haven’t seen or even heard about it. It’s a charming feminist-style western set in the black hills of the Dakotas starring Doris Day and the handsome Howard Keel. My favorite song from this movie is between these two main characters, who fight constantly and, as you might suspect, discover by the end of the movie that they’re hopelessly in love with one another.


After the song, my daughter laughed and said, “THEY ARE FRIENDS!”

Then she asked, “What’s going on?”

I said, “They’re in love with each other. They just have a funny way of showing it.”
