So, the other night I was sitting around with Dragon, John Hamm and Gumby. We were watching TV and I think the ad for Lincoln came on or something, but I’m not really sure. That’s not important. What’s important is that we starting talking about the new movie Lincoln.
Dragon and I had just seen it earlier in the week (it was awesome) and so we were telling John Hamm and Gumby how amazing it was.
Dragon: Oh man, that movie was so freaking sweet.
John Hamm: Yeah, I really want to see it.
Me: Daniel Day-Lewis was soooo good.
Dragon: Yeah, like he did the Lincoln voice perfectly!
Me: Even his look was spot on. I was looking at all the five dollar bills in our register at work the other day, and I thought to my self “Wow. That really does look just like him!”
That’s when everyone started laughing.
Dragon: Yup. She just said that.
I stand by my statement. I mean, what would be a more accurate depiction of President Lincoln than the five dollar bill? You cannot tell me that the make-up artists did not reference this nation’s currency at all when working on Daniel’s face. The similarity is just uncanny.
Later on when it was just me and Dragon in the car I brought it up again.
Me: What was so funny about my comment that Daniel Day-Lewis looked like Lincoln on the five dollar bill?
Dragon: *sigh* Nothing, Emelie. Just don’t worry about it.
Me: Fine, but I’m right and you know it.
People just don’t look at the world the same way I do.
