This post is prompted by a comment on my previous post. Someone said that the story of my friend who is diagnosed with lung cancer, was like an email forward.
I smile to myself. I have heard people say "this is life, not a movie", and "this happens only in Mills and Boons novels".
Then why does everything around me seem like a movie to me? How come the people I know are like characters from movies? Why do I hear well-scripted dialogues and even punch dialogues when I hear people talk? I can hear background music for everyday happenings. Why do I sense subtle movements and nuances that you normally notice in movie actors, in everyday life people?
Is my life a movie? Am I someone like the character Jim Carrey played in The Truman Show?
Will I ever know the truth?
Or am I on the brink of insanity?
