You know the scene from "Terms of Endearment" when Debra Winger is in the supermarket?
It all sounds so stupid now.
When everybody else was looking away embarassed, one kind woman gave me a coin for the trolley. It was all I could do to manage a little 'thankyou' at the time and stop myself bursting into tears. So I would just like to say thankyou to that kind lady.
Go rent "Terms of Endearment". Its a wonderful film, watch it, don't live it.
