Private Callison

For some reason, the cloudy, rainy weather has made me think of the movie “Private Benjamin” a lot lately.

It’s the scene where Judy Benjamin, a spoiled, rich girl played by Goldie Hawn, and her entire platoon are forced to march in the rain as punishment.

During the march, she says, “My name is Judy! J-U-D-Y Judy and I’d like somebody to call me by my name! Oh, okay I took my life in my own hands, I made a mistake fine I’m sorry! I’ll never do it again! I wanna wear my sandals… I wanna go out to lunch. I wanna be NORMAL again!”

With a few changes, that could be me:

"My name is Jill! J-I-L-L Jill and I’d like somebody to talk to me without a mouth filled with rain. … I wanna wear my sandals and not get them all squishy. I wanna go out to lunch and sit outside. I wanna be DRY again!"
