And yet another movie reference!

I recently read that the movie Ghost is being made into a musical. I won't be lining up for tickets, but I have to admit that whenever the movie version is playing on TV, I can't resist watching. It is melodramatic cheese at its finest, but for some reason, I watch it over and over.

My favorite part is when Whoopi Goldberg's character, Oda Mae finally makes the breakthrough and convinces Molly that her dead husband Sam is communicating through her and has an urgent message. As Sam, rambles out a long and detailed dialog of Tell her this, tell her that, Oda Mae edits and consolidates and finally blurts out Molly, you in danger girl.

Wouldn't it be nice if we all had our own Oda Mae who could cut through the crap and give us a clear warning when disaster was about to strike? Sure our friends and loved ones do their best to help us along, but sometimes it can be hard to hear the message through the blah blah blah that leads up to it.
