"If you were a bird... what kind of bird would you be?"

I said happily, "A flamingo!" [i just like the color pink]
Laugh, "No. You would be a hummingbird. They're small and cute like you."

I also talk fast.

Eyes burning... heart racing... life cloudy... I went and saw "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."

Benjamin Button: I was thinking how nothing lasts, and what a shame that is.
Daisy: Some things last.

I have always believed in signs. Always.
Is it a coincidence there was a hummingbird in this epic?
One that signified something in this beautiful movie.

"The hummingbird is known as a messenger and stopper of time due to its
speed... The hummingbird is also able to fly backwards, teaching us that we can
look back on our past." In the movie, the hummingbird appears during times that
a hummingbird should not survive - out at sea and during a winter storm. Perhaps
the hummingbird represents that these characters can learn from their trying
experiences but move forward with energy like a hummingbird.
