Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Quote of the Day: 07.15.17

Bet y'all thought I forgot the quote today, didn't ya? Surprise. Here I am. And it's still technically the 15th on both coasts. What a feat. In my defense, I had planned to do this on my break at work, but Disney dropped the A Wrinkle in Time trailer on my break so I was occupied.

Today's quote comes from Kerrigan & Lowdermilk's musical, The Woman Upstairs. The song itself is called 5 1/2 Minutes. I remember listening to it a lot when I was younger and went through this really big Broadway kick, but I hadn't heard it in ages. Then, last night as I'm lying in bed casually doing my last Tumblr scroll of the night, this song came up on shuffle and yep, you guessed it, I cried a little bit. I'll never stop randomly crying over songs, so I'm just going to continue to lean into it.
