Day 149: hold on for one more day

29 May

I just returned from Bridesmaids, the movie.

It was the second time I have seen it, and, I have to admit it was just as funny. No, scratch that.  It was even more fun the second time around.

I won’t give away the details.  But, I will say this:
I am still singing the theme song, Wilson Phillips style:

Some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry

I have witnessed firsthand the side effects that may occur once a bright and shiny object is placed on a woman’s ring finger, including but not limited to:

– forcing lifelong friends to buy outlandishly priced dresses they will never, ever, be caught dead wearing in public again
– extreme pain caused by unfortunate encounters with tanning bed chemicals
– on that same topic: spray on tan disasters turning bridal white into Oompa-Loompa orange

These are just some of the terrible traits that may occur.
Maybe warning labels should be placed on engagement rings?

Regardless, the movie is funny and I can only imagine that some of the wedding antics have occurred at some time, to someone, somewhere.

Or, maybe not.
But I can promise you this ~ the movie is funny.

So funny, in fact, I almost forgot to write a blog post tonight.
When I returned home from the theater and kept blubbering on and on about the flick’s funniness, Justin had to stop me and remind me of something …to write my blogpost!

Yes, I almost forgot.
But I didn’t.

I held on for one more day.
Here I am writing and all I can say is this…

I think those W.P. girls sum it all up:

Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day

So, here’s to holding on for one more day.
Blog post published.  No purchases made.
216 days to go.

    You rock! I’ve read all 149 of your posts and they keep getting better and better. I look forward to it and sharing all of your adventures, brainstorms, ups and downs (although you have VERY FEW downs), etc. etc.

    Saw Bridesmaids and I love it. So, my question to you is: if you had to pick ONE song as your THEME song, what would it be?

    Be well! Keep up the great stuff. Looking forward to the next 219 posts…
