I remember being very fascinated with Scarlett. She seemed so vulnerable on the one hand, but so independent and conniving on the other. A very complex character.
I never really thought about the meaning of fiddle-dee-dee. I suppose I just thought it was her flippant southern way of dismissing something. As it actually means nonsense, I guess that was a pretty good interpretation.
I don't get to see my grandchildren who live in Atlanta very often, so when I want to see their sweet faces in real time we FaceTime. Yesterday Tessa, who is now five wanted to model her new Minnie Mouse costume that had just arrived.
What is important is fiddle-dee-dee. It consists of silliness, playing as if we are in the same room, and Tessa holding the phone while she flips and turns all around their house making me dizzy.
I should clarify that what may seem to be fiddle-dee-dee to other people is important stuff to us.
Thanks to the magic of FaceTime we are for a short time together. We are able to bond. It is an important time for me and for my grandchildren.
I think about times past when grandparents were separated from their grandchildren for long periods of time with very little communication. I wonder if it was terribly sad for them.
I know I am grateful for modern technology. It can sure brighten up a lonely day and it is definitely not fiddle-dee-dee.
