It’s been a bummer kind of week. I have a not fun week coming up next week, and I was mulling it over in my mind this week, and getting kind of cranky in the process. Then I went to the movies last night with Wretched Daughter, my youngest, and one of my nieces. We had been planning to see Magic Mike XXL, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. The first Magic Mike movie had been ok, but was a bit on the heavy side, taking itself way too seriously. This second time around it was played lighter, more for laughs, and about ten minutes into the movie we were having a great time. The script was a good match with the acting, and there were some classic lines in the movie. There were also 4 women sitting in the row in front of ours, having as good a time as we were. I think we were all stomping our feet, hollering and dancing to the music at times.
And as I watched the movie, and laughed with the girls around me, I forgot all my worries and just enjoyed the moment. And what moments those were! The music was good, the guys were luscious and the best part of the movie was Joe Manganiello’s hunt for the perfect glass slipper. To find out what that means, you will have to see the movie yourself. I’m not about to spoil it. As far as I am concerned, gorgeous Joe stole the show.
When the movie was over, the women in front of us stood up, and the one closest to us said “come on, we are headed to Atlanta to a male review. We can be there in 2 1/2 hours.” When the three of us started laughing loudly at her tone and sound of determination, she grinned at us and said “y’all are welcome to go too”. We were still laughing when we went out the front door on our way home.
Life isn’t perfect, but there is always something good to focus on, and something to make you laugh, if you let yourself find it.
…life is good when you spend it laughing. ~cath
