In March of 1988 I went to London to get away for awhile as I was just
getting out of a bad relationship with someone I worked with. I turned on
the TV (BBC) and saw moonlighting for the first time.
Actually, I had seen
the pilot and loved it but I always had commitment problems and intimacy
issues and thought I should stay away from anything I had to watch on a
weekly basis. Well, here I am 17 years later trying to decided if I should
buy the DVD set. I was looking out on the web to see what the 1st & 2nd
Season looked like and how many episodes it included when I came upon your
site. I read you synopsis/review of "I Am Curious" and thought I should
drop you a line. You claim it didn't sit well with you ... it didn't feel
right and you just don't like it.
In 1987, I was working with a PR rep from another company who was a real
prude and she constantly sat in judgment of my activities.
arguments while working in Europe, we flew home on April 23rd 1987 ... my
birthday. Although, we worked well together and there was definite
affection for the other, we hated the fact that we had to share a hotel
room. She wanted to treated me to a birthday diner at the Water Club since
I had to spend the night on the couch. We argued. At the Water Club, we
had a few drinks and started discussing our views of each other. The
escalated and name calling was abundant. I think it was when I loudly
proclaimed she was a prude in whore's clothing she slapped me across the
face ... hard ... I saw stars. The crowd gasped. I wanted to kill her but
instead, I kissed her. Again, really, I saw stars. The crowd clapped.
We were married six weeks later and when we told our friends they all said,
"Well, it's about time". Yoko Ono once said (to us), When Epic Love's
fight, They fight in epic proportion. We were married again in 1989, 1994.
Almost married again in 1997 and we just officially stopped dating about 3
months ago which reminds me, I need to call and see what she's doing this
weekend. It's been a wild ride and I've been slapped a few times since
I guess you have to experience it to understand it but I do understand the
episode. The frustration, the bickering, the challenge ... it becomes
foreplay. I found over the years that when people are not in touch with
their feelings, they express them in the only way they know how and
sometimes that maybe just a good quarrel.
I have never regretted the years I've spent with and without her.
BTW - When I brought up/bring up Moonlighting, she claims it's a ridiculous
show without a hint of realism or romance ... and then we both laugh.
Hope you find your Maddie!
