A holiday love story

When I was in the hospital in Boulder, Colorado with the heart problem a few weeks ago, I asked a nurse about my cardiologist. I knew he had retired, but didn’t know why. “He’s 68 years old,” she said, “and he wants to spend more time with his girlfriend, who lives in Chicago.”

Cousins

If you like sappy love stories, Cousins is an underrated movie. Ted Danson’s wife (Sean Young) and Isabella Rossellini’s husband (William Petersen) have an affair, and it sparks a special friendship between Danson and Rossellini. (I was just reminded of a line from the movie that goes something like, “Don’t you know? Men and women who are married can only be close friends in large groups.”)
