The prompt I chose for today was
If you had to be trapped inside a movie for 5 days, which movie would you pick?
First off, I don’t watch a whole lot of movies, so I started to scan through the ones I could remember:Dante’s Peak — uh, no.
Harry Potter — maybe the first one?
Nacho Libre — negative
Napoleon Dynamite — actually, I have done that for 5 days.
Mostly because I don’t watch a lot of movies, but also because I LOVE the female relationships in this movie. It is such a complex relationship to have a lot of women who love each other. The love the hate, the jealousy, the helping, the tremendous need to have female friends.
But mostly the support.
I started loving that movie in high school. When Sally Fields has her breakdown in the cemetery about how life isn’t fair.
I knew that’s what I wanted. I knew I needed to have women around me that I could break down with and they would understand and still love me.
And I do.
But, maybe Harry Potter would have been a better pick. But not the last one.
**Wait, is Downton Abby a movie, because I’d pick that if it is. 🙂
**Also, Steel Magnolias is free with Amazon Prime. Guess what I’ll be watching at Naptime. It is truly the saddest, best movie I have or probably ever will seen. I adore it.
