“My love life is like a piece of Swiss cheese; most of it’s missing, and what’s there stinks.” -Joan Rivers
Okay, so most of you won’t care about this, but I feel like the above quote really describes Dory before she met Marlin. I mean, think about it: she can’t remember anything, she lost her family, and she’s just sort of aimlessly wandering throughout the ocean.
This quote reminded me of Swiss Cheese, obviously. So, I was curious as to how Swiss cheese was made—and what exactly causes those holes in the cheese.
I discovered that there is a certain bacterial culture specific to Swiss cheese that causes air pockets to bubble up and form, causing the holes in the cheese.
AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT BACTERIA IS CALLED?!?
I know. Who knew there was this connection between Dory and Swiss cheese?
The Joan Rivers quote equates the holes in the Swiss cheese as to what is missing in her life. But, P. Shermani is what causes these holes, and P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney is one of the only things Dory can remember.
Maybe what is missing is what you need to remember, to hold on to.
