Lou and I have seen this play seven times now. We saw it in London in 1999, and the guy who played the Phantom in that production was the BEST ever. The guy today was pretty darned awesome too.
Anyway, I got a little choked up when Christine started singing "Think of Me."
Think of me, think of me fondly,
when we've said goodbye.
Remember me once in a while -
please promise me you'll try.
Sitting there in the dark theater with the most wonderful guy in the world next to me, I was slapped with the image of Lou thinking of me fondly after I am gone.
Lousy thoughts like that sneak up on me when I am not paying attention.
But I quickly reminded myself that today I feel wonderful. My numbers are good. My tumors shrank significantly. I am pretty sure I am getting the clinical trial drug. Clearly I am not going anywhere any time soon.
Plus, the unvarnished truth is, I am such a pain to live with, who's to say that he would think of me fondly ;^)
