Do you recognize that movie quote? Maybe not, because the actual quote is "I'm ready for my close-up". It's from Sunset Boulevard, one of my favorite old movies.
The line came to me as I was listing jewelry in my Etsy Shop, and I realized how many different kinds of cameos I have for sale. I'm not sure what draws my eye to them, they just seem to have a timeless appeal.
If you too, would like a movie quote stuck in your head, check out this list from the American Film Institute. I was really surprised at how many I use in everyday converstation.
"You're going to need a bigger boat."- usually said when I'm trying to load my truck for an antique show.
"They're here...." (always in a sing songy kind of voice).
"May the force be with you"- said whenever you want to wish someone luck.
"What a dump" (what I say when I walk into my house).
"Show me the money" - what my husband says when I ask him to pick up dinner.
