I was at a movie sometime last summer when I first saw a preview for Creed. It was set to come out around Thanksgiving. And I just knew I had to see it!
This is a big deal because I rarely go to the theater for adult movies. Usually I am taking the kids to whatever cartoon thing looks good.
Today I had to go do some work and run some errands. By the time I was done, my family was out visiting. So I had a rare opportunity of an unplanned night off of life!!! So I went to the movies!
The first time I ever went to the movie theater by myself was during a very troubled time in life. There was so much stuff going on that I just wanted to run and hide. So I did, at a theater. It was Michael Clayton; which I didn't really know anything about . . . but George Clooney is my Hollywood crush, so it seemed like a good choice. And it was a relaxing 119 minutes. I went by myself and just unplugged my brain from all things reality.
Tonight was not quite as needed to unplug from reality . . . although the break from reality was nice. Reality is always demanding. So escaping it from time to time is always good!
For the record, Creed was fantastic. I knew it would be. I love the shows with heart.
Tonight I am thankful for a window to run away and do something that I wanted to do that was just for fun and just for me!
