Happiness is a Barrel of Popcorn to Yourself! Seriously it is! Have you ever seen the show Parks and Recreation? If not, Google it.
Donna & Tom have a day once a year that is all about “Treat Yo Self”! Please watch the YouTube video first, then continue reading below.
Please tell me you could use one of those days?! Well my friends of the internet-sphere, I did just that the other day. Well sort of. I went to the movies. I had planned to go alone because it was a random Thursday night but my good friend said she could go. Woot Woot. Off to the movies we went. It was probably the best evening I have had in a while.
I picked up a BARREL of popcorn and LARGE drink (half sweet/half unsweet tea) for myself. And it was completely MINE. I didn’t have to share with 30 other fingers or 3 other mouths. It was phenomenal. I mean I did share with my girlfriend but she had her own food so it was ALL MINE!
What movie did we see? The Girl on the Train. Spoiler Alert** The book is 1000 times better. Emily Blunt does a good job and I absolutely love her hubby John Krasinski (Jim from The Office). If you’ve never seen The Office, please do yourself a favor and get on Netflix. It’s probably my favorite tv show of all time. Check out the official trailer for The Girl on the Train.
Dang! The trailer makes the movie look dark and sinister. I mean, it is. But it was a good movie and an even better book. If you can, read the book first then see the movie. You won’t be disappointed. So yeah, Happiness is a Barrel of Popcorn to Yourself. It’s watching a movie in the theaters that’s not a cartoon and you don’t have to share your popcorn, your drink, or your candy. Happiness is not having to “sshh” a little one and apologize constantly for them kicking the person’s chair in front of you. Happiness is a Barrel of Popcorn to Yourself!!!
