I read the Cast Away promo and got to the end and was hoping to see Lari but she was left out. So I went to IMDB to get her name (couldn't remember it) and a picture and saw she died just a couple of weeks ago. Sadness. She was beautiful and something about her looks hits my DNA hard. That scene where she and Tom Hanks meet on the dirt road is my favorite in the movie. I don't know if it's because she looks similar to my wife, or my wife is my wife because that look hits my DNA.

>>>I don't know if it's because she looks similar to my wife, or my wife is my wife because that look hits my DNA. <<<

That touches on a theory of mine. After somebody you know has a relationship that ends for whatever reason you often hear something like "His new girlfriend looks a lot like his ex." Often, this seems to be a denigration of "Him."

However, my theory is "that look hits his DNA" and is largely independent of him holding a torch for the ex.

FTR, I have often had this discussion with my wife as a pre-emptive strike just in case she sees a picture of, or meets, any girl that I liked ever and to keep her from thinking-"Wait a minute-I look a lot like her and her and her." LOL

On "A look that hits my DNA" (I like that term).

Over the winter, the kids have dug out our respective yearbooks, apparently with mischief in mind-LOL.

I did not know Mrs. S in high school, I met her a year and a half after she graduated, I am 2 years older.

There is a picture of her in her yearbook that really speaks to me. If I had not known her and looked through a hundred yearbooks at the time, I would have picked out that one picture as somebody I would want to have a relationship with-and that is gospel truth.

She's four years older than my wife; they look like sisters.
