Two Weeks Notice is one of those romantic comedies that I secretly love to watch. Maybe you’ve seen it? My guess is not.
There are two scenes in the movie that have played time and time again in my head since I first saw it.
In one scene, Sandra Bollock’s character is on the phone, ordering Chinese food. When she’s finally finished with her order, she says, “Yes, it’s for one.” You then see her alone at her kitchen table, quietly eating the food, while reading- looking content, if I do say so myself.
The movie continues on, as romantic comedies do, and she ends up with her boss- Hugh Grant’s character (great choice), and you see her on the phone once again, ordering Chinese. This time, though, at the end of her order, she says, “No, it’s for two.”
There has been times in my life that I have been a “for two” but most recently, for the past year or so, I’ve been a “for one.”
I won’t always be a “for one.”
So, I will relish in this period of my life while it lasts, while I wait for you.
And I’ll take advantage of the fact that you’re not here yet- and I’ll eat both fortune cookie that come in the bag!
Oh, and PS: You enjoy Chinese food, don’t you? Fingers crossed, because I love it.
