I had a girls’ night out this Tuesday, meaning tonight, or last night as it is way beyond midnight and I can’t fall asleep – We had dinner and a movie, (a perfect date) and we saw…The Ugly Truth. I spent half of the time on the floor laughing. Have I mentioned it was funny?
I’m not exactly sure what the purpose of this post is, besides the fact that whether you’re single or married, looking or found, a man or a woman, this movie will remind you what it’s all about, and what it’s not, and how hard we work to be who we think we want to be, and who we think we think THEY want us to be…a funny funny look at who we are.
(Warning- it has foul language so its not for the prude heart-ed and have a I mentioned it’s funny?)
It really got me thinking, and I remembered back to long long ago, before I was even single, before I even knew what being single was, before I was 12…when I was in 4th grade or 5th grade – we used to have parties at home, on Friday nights, with light adult supervision, food, an activity (usually a quiz game with prizes) and then, DANCING!!! When I think about those parties, I have a few vague memories, and two vivid ones, memories that are more pictures than actual memories, because they are pictures that have turned into memories – I’m not even sure who the boys in the photos are; but when I think about my childhood, in the the or 5th grade, these are the memories that I come up with. from these photos.
