I’m sitting here, during our lunch-hour-slash-run-around-the-house-like-possessed-people break in our homeschool day, and I want to write something. My fingers are poised over the keyboard in anticipation of great thoughts breaking forth like tsunamis over a sea wall.
Unfortunately, my mind is more like a kettle of sludge at the moment.
Ah, homeschooling! How you drain my circuits!
Still, the urge to send something…anything…out onto the internet sea in the hopes that someone will pluck it from the foam and communicate back to me is vital to my sanity. Knowing that someone might be out there, finding my humble little cork-capped bottles of thought, is a great comfort.
So, how are you?
I do have one tidbit to share. I watched a movie. Another movie. This one was a rental. And I was so thoroughly delighted with it that I thought you should know. I want to preface this bit of info with the fact that part of my enjoyment may have to do with the fact that I did not expect to enjoy it at all.
You see, it happened to star an actor whom I have always considered devoid of any talent besides a winning smile. Frankly, he’s just too cute. And I assumed that this cuteness, this overwhelmingly delightful adorability, was the key to his face being in mine every time I turned around. Overexposure, it’s called. And I was determined to roll my eyes at his every appearance.
He proved me very wrong. And I’m happy to admit it.
Can you guess to whom I am referring? And do you know which movie?
Okay, I’ll tell you.
There were a few tedious moments, but overwhelmingly, it was just plain sweet. Not saccharin sweet, but sweet like a salted caramel; the kind of sweet that leaves you wanting more. And much of it made me laugh out loud, which is never a bad thing for me.
My time is up. Gotta put the cork in this one and fling it over the ramparts. It’s been refreshing standing for a moment and smelling the free air…
