I’m sure it’s not just me but on the drive home from work tonight I had what I like to call a movie moment. It’s when the song on the stereo exactly compliments what’s happening in the real world and feels like it could easily be a scene from a movie.
Picture the scene, it’s dark, I’m in the city so there’s lots of oncoming traffic, the lights bouncing off the cars and the drop shadow of the street lights give you that nice enclosed setting. To my right is a park in near darkness however I can see more traffic through the trees in the adjacent Road which joins the one I’m on up ahead, about 300 yards. The song by Fleetwood Mac named songbird gently starts to introduce itself through my speakers and in the distance through the dimly lit park I can see the blue flashing lights or an ambulance. As the volume increases of the track so does the ambulance siren, it then comes around the corner to join my road heading towards me. Everything goes into slow motion and I realise I’m having that ‘movie moment’, it could quite easily fit the ending scene of a film or crime thriller.
Anyone else had these moments or should I check into the local asylum?
