A new phrase enters the lexicon of our brave new century!
conscious Uncoupling is an interesting euphemism for divorce. It demonstrates that Gwynneth Paltrow is also uncoupled from reality.
I thought of other Uncouplings. Most of them are in train movies, like Breakheart Pass, the Charles Bronson cowboy flick derived from an Alistair McClean novel, in which our hero does the train rooftop chase and a bunch of carriages are uncoupled. The passengers are not conscious of this act.
Of course, coitus interruptus is a conscious uncoupling of couples caught in flagrante. Falling asleep on the job might initiate an unconscious uncoupling.
I expect Gwynnie will now consciously couple with a seagull, or better still her inner consciousness.
