|Charlie made this.|
I just realized that I have written more about Charlies than any other people during the entirety of the existence of this blog. Boy Charlie, Girl Charlie, and Uncle Charlie. As you can see from the Uncle Charlie link, there is a lot of blurring going on with the Charlies in my life. Even Boy Charlie and Girl Charlie are friends now.
Charlies have made such an indelible mark on my life that I think I just like people named Charlie out of habit. Every Charlie I have ever known is just good people.
There's a scene in Elizabethtown where Kirsten Dunst talks about being able to tell a lot about a person by their name. I bet she would love Charlies. She'd say something like...
Never met a Charlie I didn't like. Charlies make you laugh, sometimes til it hurts, sometimes at them rather than with them but, they don't mind because they love to see you smile. Charlies just make the world a better place, you know?
I've always loved Kirsten Dunst.
One of the Charlies is coming back today. It's unexpected but, we count it as a very pleasant surprise.
