My best friend and I look forward to our birthdays. For years, we have taken each other's birthday off and spent the day together.
(Uh, that is the first and last time I put a pic of myself up on this blog, so you better catch it while you can! Pick yourself up off the floor, Serenity-30!!)
I'm not sure how this started up. It was all so automatic when we were teenagers, but I lived in New Orleans for a couple of years, and I suppose it started when I got back, in my very early 30s.
The day usually consists of a movie, lunch or dinner, and some shopping. (Yes, I frown up at this, but she's a girly-girl and loves to shop. I, a tomboy, hate shopping!).
I called her early Sunday morning to see if she was awake. I was hoping she wanted to put this off, as I wanted to watch some college basketball. But she was,and she sounded bright eyed and bushy tailed and ready to "get in the streets".
The chick was very excited.
No basketball for this Oldgirl.
So we decided to head to the movies first.
We saw Taken.
I am buying that one the day it comes out on DVD.
All I gotta say is this: if you want to know what happened to Nat.alie Holl.away, go see the movie.
I ain't being crass, I'm just being real.
Whoever saw the movie... Ya'll know what's up.
We were two of only 5 people in the movie.
So you know how "us" do.
Heck yeah, we were talking hard to the screen. We sat there, munched on a shared bag of popcorn, and talked all throughout the movie.
"Hit that sucka!"
"Look at her, she think she getting over."
"He's a buster!!"
"That's what he get!"
And so on and so on.
A movie is good when we talk a lot.
I liked that movie, as it had a heck of a lot of shooting and fighting in it. Most of my stories have some mess like that jumping off, so this was right up my alley...
It all reminded me of when we would go to the movies during our preteen and teenage years. Back then, we would stuff our coats and purses with hot dogs, burgers and candy from the mall, and eat in the movies. We were particulary fond of the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street movies, but these days, our tastes are a bit more "refined", lol.
So after the movies, we headed off to do some ol' girly mess. I was whining and grumbling the whole way there, but once we got there...
I had a really good time.
To be continued.
