I am the type of person who loses themselves in a book. I am the person who wants to finish “just one more chapter” before turning in for the night even though I am struggling to stay awake. The person who subsequently wakes up at three in the morning, drooling on the pages of said book. When I read a good book, I feel some sort of odd connection to the characters, a connection that lingers with me long after I’ve finished reading. I find myself contemplating their lives after the happenings in the book, and sometimes even what their lives were like before I met them.

“My pinky promises.”-Despicable Me (Seriously, watch this movie!)
“One time, at band camp…”-American Pie
If you have never used this line, I’m seriously concerned about you.
“Ice cream…Lieutenant Dan, ice cream!!”-Forrest Gump
No one at my house asks for, mentions, or even thinks of ice cream without channeling Forrest Gump.
“Don’t talk about me like I’m not here.”-Steel Magnolias

Pretty much everything Dory says in Finding Nemo can fit into daily conversation, wouldn’t you agree? I know finding P.Sherman
