a question of time

why is it that on days of our lives, sami sends out save the date cards, for a wedding that’s the next week? don’t you usually do that way before the date of the wedding to let people know to…oh, I don’t know…save the date? but then on the big day, her wedding ceremony lasts a week. even with the interruptions by salem police about a well-known terrorist being loose in salem (who happens to be sami, herself, unbeknownst to everyone in salem), it still shouldn’t take a week.

in another story, belle finds out she’s pregnant and only 6 weeks later, is about 5 months along, and going into early labor. if belle has the kid this early, it’ll magically come out full term, and probably be in kindergarten by christmas. the baby’s father is philip (who recently lost his leg in a land mine blast (thanks to sami, in disguise as the aforementioned terrorist) while serving his marine duties in iraq (before being rescued by his friends, who decided they’d bring him home after the government determined it was too dangerous to try) and learned all about incredible prosthetics and how to live a normal life from heather mills mccartney, who paid a visit to his hospital bed (and only 2 weeks ago got out of his wheelchair and tried his prosthetic leg, and today is walking just fine). whew. still with me?

in the meantime, belle’s mother, marlena has amnesia, yet as she helps belle with premature labor, she has flashbacks of giving birth to belle. could this be the breakthrough we’ve all been waiting for? will marlena pick john black, her husband? or roman brady, her ex-husband she slept with and got pregnant, and the stress from keeping her secret affair and pregnancy caused her to faint, and miscarry, the shock of which caused amnesia? or will marlena pick that creepy doctor north, played by the same actor who played roman brady a long time ago and marlena also has flashbacks of being with him, but he’s been hypnotizing her to pick him.

like counting the sands through the hourglass, these are the things that keep me up at night.
