“You Need a Role Model”
I watched a movie last night. I know, to the untrained eye, this may seem like a usual event, but this is me. I hardly ever watch movies, unless I go on a date, and you can probably guess how infrequently this occurs.
The movie of convenience was Gone in Sixty Seconds with Nicholas Cage. It was about an ex-car thief returning to his trade for one day to steal fifty cars and save his brother’s hide. It wasn’t a bad movie. In one scene, as they are boosting cars, they get car jacked. Some young punk shoves a gun in the car and says, “get out of this car now.”
The car theif responds by saying, “lazy ass man’s way of stealing a car,” opens the door to the car, knocks the carjacker over, and then yells, “you need a role model!” I think we could all use role models. Heck, I wish I had one now, as I’m writing this. I suppose too that I do have one, I just don’t know who it is.
Another movie that’s come out, which would make a great date movie, if HE were to ever ask me, is The Village. I don’t know why, but scary movies make for great date flicks. Something about that “being on the edge of your seat” adrenaline rush that makes all the girls want to get lusty. At least, I have to admit, it works for me. It’s kind of fun cuddling up in the dark, covering your eyes, and wondering who’s going to get the axe next. At least it’s more entertaining then the current round of layoffs at work.
Speaking of women, I heard a quote the other day, which I’m sure men just won’t understand. Somebody (another woman, actually) said to me, “she dresses like us. She doesn’t show too much leg and all her bras are all lightly padded.” In hindsight, I think most males would be very confused by this remark. Needless to say, I knew exactly what she was talking about.
What, today’s Friday, were you expecting me to talk about something deep and meaningful? Sorry but, I got a date tonight. And, no, we’re probably not going to see The Village.
Until next time…
